Pixels For Sale – $1.00 Each

January 13, 2006


Although Alex Tew won’t be the first university student to come up with a way of making a little spare cash, he may just be the most successful. At 21, Alex has made himself a millionaire by selling pixels. Yup, Pixels! Alex’s site ‘www.milliondollarhomepage.com‘ is a rather colourful tapestry of advertisments, each one of which takes up a number of pixels on the sites home page.

Using the typical method of selling advertising where more space equals more money on a micro-scale, Alex has sold pretty much all the pixels, with the last 1000 selling for over $38k, which of course were auctioned on eBay!

All is not well though! As the site has gathered popularity via various media reports and Blog entries, the Company who host the site for Alex have noticed various DDOS (Distributed Denial Of Service) attacks originating from locations world wide. Damn those player haters! 🙂
