Million Dollar Idea

I wish I had thought of this million dollar idea.

A young UK college student posted a webpage called MillionDollarHomepage, which started off with a million blank pixels. Anyone who wanted to purchase ad space could do so for $1 per pixel. The home page is guaranteed to stay up for a minimum of 5 years.

This image shows what his page looked like in September 2005; now it’s almost full. In fact, the last 1000 pixels sold on eBay for $38,100.

It goes to show that there’s no shortage of simple-but-brilliant great capitalist ideas…
