Utility zero

Perhaps the single most useless site on the entire Web is now live, for limited values of “live”:

The Internet is supposed to be the world’s most inclusive medium: A miraculous tech utopia anyone can access. Which is why Justin Foley thought it might be funny to make a Web site that was, well — exactly the opposite.

Foley is the man behind MostExclusiveWebsite.com, a site that — true to its name — only one person can visit at a time. You access the site by requesting a “ticket” for your 60-second window and then waiting in line; as of Tuesday night, there were only 40,204 other people you needed to get behind.

Of course, if you close your browser tab, you lose your place, so the line moves more quickly than you might think.
