Sell nothing, make $1,000,000 

I can't believe this worked. Alex Tew of Wiltshire, England set up a blank website and charged advertisers $1 per pixel. 1,000,000 pixels and hundreds (thousands?) of ads later, the Million Dollar Homepage was born. Hmmm... does anybody want to buy a bridge?
This insane situation has started a goldrush - check out these current auctions on eBay if you want to start your own version and get a piece of the action.

Something tells me this dotcom bubble will burst pretty quickly.
