Unique Site Nets College Student $1 Million


The idea: sell a million pixels for $1 each. Once all are sold, the creator promises to maintain the site for at least the next five years. A 21-year-old British university student has turned a brainstorm into nearly a million dollars in just four months by selling ad space on his Web site pixel by pixel.

Appropriately dubbed The Million Dollar Homepage, Alex Tew's site is within shouting distance of selling out its inventory of 1 million pixels. As of mid-day Friday, the site's count noted that only 53,500 pixels were still up for grabs. InformationWeek | Online Advertising | Unique Site Nets College Student $1 Million | December 30, 2005
