Citing “some big plans that take funding to accomplish,” Jim Kenzig announced today that he intends to auction off theTHIN.net.

Perhaps one of the first (if not THE first) website communities for Citrix and thin client resources, theTHIN.net is now mostly known for it's “THIN” email distribution list, currently hosted by freelists.org.

As the site's creator (and benefactor of the sale), Kenzig claims that he is “by no means bowing out of the Thin Computing arena.” Kenzig also runs a website called ondemandaccess.com, and it's unclear if he would continue to run that site after the sale of theTHIN.net. When businesses are sold, the seller typically signs a non-compete that prohibits them from competing against the business they just sold.

In the Ebay sales listing, Kenzig claims that theTHIN.net receives 2.5 million page views per month, although that figure has not been independently validated. TheTHIN.net's homepage had, up until a few weeks ago, a link that showed site traffic, and most days averaged around 400-800 visitors. That link has since been removed from theTHIN.net's current homepage.

In addition to the site itself, Kenzig is also selling all of the intellectual property, including download files, the history of emails, and the email lists themselves. The sales information indicates that the buyer “ will be made a moderator for these lists,” referring to the multiple mailing lists associated with it. The Ebay listing does not indicate whether the buyer would actually own these email lists.

TheTHIN.net is currently generating $20,000 in revenue per year for sponsors. Expenses are unknown.
