I am jealous. This guy made a million dollars by selling pixels... PIXELS! The first time I read about this I dismissed it immediately. Who wants to buy pixels for a dollar each? Practically charity, right? But it turned out to be pure genius. The initial publicity for the site made the price reasonable. The last 1000 pixels were sold on eBay for 38,100 dollars.
You could say it is just a scheme. But the real funny thing is the buyers got their moneys worth in advertisement. Read about it some more on yahoo.
