Making a million online


I’m sure many of you are aware of Alex Tew’s Million Dollar Homepage – the young entrepreneur’s idea to make one million dollars selling one million pixels of web advertising space at one dollar per pixel.The idea was to finance the man’s passage through university. Fees have obviously gone up since I left!

Well, the final 1,000 pixels have just sold at auction on eBay for a whopping $38,100, It could have been better – some fake bidders had driven the price up to $160,000 at one point. Which makes Alex’s total pixel fund stand at an amazing $1,037,000. Nice work if you can get it.
