Pixel Pages 02/01/06

On the 26th August 2005, Student Alex Tew had an idea to earn some money to help get him through three years at University.  The idea was simple, start a website and sell off 10 x 10 blocks of pixels at $1 per pixel and divide the site into 1 million pixels hence creating a million dollars.  At first it was just a couple of friends and family who bought into the idea but after a massive amount of media exposure and self promotion possibly the internets biggest fad was born.  Or was it?  After hearing about the success of Alexís site a massive number of copycat sites began to appear.  Iíve dedicated this page to the ones I can find and listed the below.  Iíll start with the original.








This page was written on the 2nd January 2006, it will be interesting to see if the fad of pixel pages is still with us in a years time.  Who knows?  One man who probably wonít care is Alex Tew after he had one of the most original ideas for making a million dollars.
