    The Million Dollar Homepage

    Discussion started by Harvey Wallbanger - Jan 6, 2006

    I can't believe this worked.

    Apparently this kid just wanted to make some money to pay for school, and he's already at over a million dollars.

    He bought a website with a million pixels of space, and sold them as ad space for a dollar a pixel. Word got out, the media picked it up, and within 4 months, the 21 year old became a millionaire.

    Not bad.

    Dude made some serious money fast. I heard it was a web project in his class, and the assignment was just 'find a way to make some money on the web'.


    edit
    But i guess i could get the real story if i read the first post, and links.

    Nah, he claims he sat down to try and figure out his finances, wrote "how can I become a millionaire" in a notebook, and had his plan written out twenty minutes later.

    The website cost him fifty bucks, euro.
