how i made money off the diablo iii auction house (and you could have, too)

I started playing Diablo III the day of release at around 4:20AM. A month later, I transferred $1000 I had made from the game to my bank account. This wasn’t something I had planned out from the start: I played for a couple weeks with no intention of making any money, but hitting Act II of Inferno made a few things clear: the game just wasn’t much fun at that late stage; the only way to progress effectively was playing the Auction House rather than the game; and those high-end items I needed were much better when they were converted into actual real money for me to spend on something with more long-term value, like alcohol.
