Mercata, Inc. used to own the domain, but ceased operations on January 31, 2001 after people realized that reverse auctions were no fun. However, the domain name was quickly snapped up by Adams Media Corporation, which publishes a series of books called the "Everything series." From the looks of the site, the books look like they're similar to the For Dummies series, but without all the self-deprecating "It's okay to be a dummy" stuff. The web site's motto is "We Have Everything," in a blatant swipe at our fair E2.
