Read a story in News.com that Alex Tew, a 21 years old student from a small town in Wiltshire, England sells pixels, the tiny dots on the screen that appear when you call up his home page. (What would you and I do with those infernal pixels? Look at that boy’s ingenuity, man!)
The home page of his web site appropriately named as Milliondollarhomepage.com, “now looks like an online Times Square, festooned with a multicolored confetti of ads.”
Advertisers who have bought (really!) chunks of 100 pixels or more have discovered that they were receiving actual valuable Web hits for a fraction of the cost of traditional Internet advertising.
So far they have bought up 911,800 pixels.
So he is only a whisker sway from a Million $$$.
Hey, leave some green to the greens!
