MillionDollarHomepage eBay’s Last 1000 Pixels

So, I’ve been watching Alex Tew make $1M in revenue since August 26th, 2005. He’ll hit his mark (and then some) when the last 1000 pixels is auctioned off and finalized.

Watching this kid (21 years old) do something like this makes me drool. It makes me wonder why I didn’t think of something like this. How did he make that work? Not technically, of course, but PR-wise. I mean, word of mouth spreads a bit, and then the big media caught on and blew it into orbit.

That’s one lucky/smart cookie.
