This is Simply Unbelievable

November 22, 2005

I saw this article in today’s Wall Street Journal about this how this guy set up with the goal of selling 10,000 pixels at $100 per pixel in order to make $1,000,000. Guess what, he’s up to $643,000 now! Crazy! I get a headache just looking at the jumbled mess.

  1. This reminds me of the old “book of matches to make a million”. A guy printed a bunch of matchbooks with an address, saying “to make a million, send $1 to this address”. He’d take the $1 and mail back a letter saying “print matchbooks asking people to send $1 for instructions on how to make a million”.

    Sure ’nuff, the guy made a million…

  2. An extemely simple idea that took off. I’m still kicking myself
    for not thinking of it myself!
