The Million dollar Homepage



http://www.milliondollarhomepage.com/

This student thought of this idea long time ago. He sells litte pixels on the page, each pixel is $1 and there is 1,000,000 of em. I ended up seeing it 5 months back. it wasnt that full of addvertisments. he has now filled up the entire page and is selling the last spot on ebay. its at $21,000 and it was at $6,000 last night.

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.d...ME:L:LCA:UK:31

if you get a chance read the entire blog from bottom to top. funny how quick he made a million.

there are so many reserved spaces (black pixels with R on it) on that site. i wont be surprise if those spaces go up for sale in the future for big money.

im sure some of the reserved spaces belong the the owner. Brilliant!

They're not all new accounts, they're accounts who have changed their names for this auction. Go to the bid history and click this icon beside the user names to see their previous eBay name.

Also, the united-states-government.com is actually a Canadian website.

This is hilarious. Look at his bidder list. They are either NEW users, or have just changed their name which is shady or are OTHER milliondollar page "people". I have been on eBay too long, this is sooo shady.

Too funny.

What kind of people jack up the price another $1,000 dollars after they bid on it?
