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.
