Last chance for history

Fair enough… I was waffling on about eBay last night but this is an auction that should yield some interest. For those of you who are familiar with the Million Dollar Homepage you’ll find this the last piece of the puzzle, for those of you not, you might want to read up a little bit.

In brief, the Million Dollar Homepage is owned and operated by UK student Alex Tew, a 21-year-old entrepreneur, who hopes to pay his way through university by selling 1 million pixels of internet ad space for $1 a pixel. Well, he’s sold 990,000 of them and he’s put the final 1,000 up on eBay. At time of writing he was up to around €38,000, a far cry from the 1,000 he would have raised – and there’s still six days left on the auction!

If you’re up for it, and you’ve got a spare fifty grand then head on over to his auction to check it out….

    you and me both, but he’s not finished yet. he made the 990,000 dollars.

    this morning, the last 1,000 are up at 150,000 dollars with 5 days still to go.

    yeah don’t you know it!

    $152,300 @ 9pm. 4 days remaining. opening bid was a dollar, 152 bids since then. i wouldn’t be surprised if the closing bid was a million bucks – some fairytale!
