Google I/O sold out in 59 minutes the day tickets went on sale, and many of you who wanted to register for tickets couldn’t – whether it be due to traffic bringing the site down to its knees or due to you not being able to try in time. I have good news and bad news if you’re one of the unfortunate souls who couldn’t get in on it.

The good news is that folks are selling their tickets on eBay. Yay for user-generated marketplaces! The bad news is that you’re going to be paying anywhere from $1,000 to $2,000 for each ticket, and maybe even more. Google wasn’t lying when they said this was their most anticipated I/O in every way, and if tickets selling out in 59 minutes didn’t show you that, then these eBay listings should.

Any of you brave enough to bite on one of these? Seems like dozens of other bidders are. [Ebay 1|2 via Android Police]
