million-dollar idea


an article from the Washington Post that tells the story of Alex Tew, a 21 year old student who had an idea to make a little extra money on the internet.

Worried about paying his college tuition last August, Tew chanced upon one of those rare original money-making ideas. How about creating an Internet Web page out of 1 million blank pixels? And then selling those pinhead-size digital picture elements that make up a computer screen for a dollar apiece, or $100 per 10-by-10-pixel block, to advertisers who turn them into colorful tiny billboards and micro logos linked to their own Web sites?

the last 1000 pixels are currently on e-bay for auction, the idea will put him over $1 million
