    I remember hearing about this LONG LONG ago.

    Think your a good IMer? You probably have nothing on this guy. :p

    If your unfamiliar. The guy made a site of just advertising space. Priced at $1 per pixel. Then created a huge media hype which made him a cool million. Genius.

    Yea that thing was a great idea.

    Worst IMers of all time were the hundreds of clones that came after it and only ever filled 100 pixels :)

    There was some guy on my local CL who kept posting (and posting, and posting, and posting) about someone making him a site like that recently.

    Yeah that was a good idea a long time ago.

    Although in the end I wouldn't even say he was that successful. He made a ton of money, but he didn't build it into anything that would last. Hopefully he's taken that money and reinvested it into something else, otherwise he'll just be draining down his bank account as he lives off the $1mm he made.
