My big gripe with the original site is that it is there for selfish reasons. I have recently launched http://www.TheHopeMosaic.com/ which uses the same idea but aims to raise funds for the victims of the hurricanes. We have a more tamed goal but hope to raise $200,000 - $300,000 for the relief effort.

Something is successful that is that simple and you know people are going to copy it…

So basically this British college student had an insane idea is raking in thousands (so far!) 

He made the website http://www.milliondollarhomepage.com where he sells ads for $1 a pixel in blocks of 10x10 for $100.  Expensive, yet people keep buying ads.  Why?  Because he has gotten so much media attention that tons of clicks are coming through even for the tiny 100 pixel ads.

A bunch of copy-cat sites have also come out including
millionpennyhomepage.com
millioneurohomepage.com/
and even…
zerodollarhomepage.com

One hell of a lucky guy!

New site with some improvements arised:
http://www.newmilliondollarhomepage.com/

You can see a bigger tooltip image when you put the mouse over images. The guy seems to launch a race with $1m USD as finish line LOL
This became really interesting
