Serious props to Alex Tew, the british college student who was the brainchild of The Million Dollar Homepage. I posted about it on September 23, 2005 impressed that he had sold 108,000 pixels in less than one month. Amazingly, he has sold all 1,000,000 pixels in less than 5 months according to his last blog post. He decided to post the last 1000 pixels on ebay for auction and wound up getting a final bid of $38,100.00 for the final pixels on this piece of internet history. Although there are some really interesting knock offs of this concept, this is the original and the only one that will most likely ever sell out. Alex was the originator of the idea and he executed on it, a topic I will be posting about shortly. He went from a 21 year old college student to a millionaire in less than 5 months. Impressive to say the least.
