and the weirdest thing? people are buying them.. 7100 sold.. 992 900 remaining..
It's actually a pretty ingenious idea. Because of posts like this, that site will soon become something of the popularity of eBaums world or the like; people will IM and email it to friends, and post it on blogs and forums. The more links get posted the higher his page rank gets, as well as the more exposure he, and the sites linked, get. I didn't check his PR, but when it reaches 6 or 7 (if it hasn’t already) he'll stand to make a killing selling traditional ad space. And of course all this means good marketing for the sites who purchase space.

holy shit, it's really quite enginous (idk how to spell that). If this guy makes even one or two of these sites, he will never have to do real work again, and the only investment he'll have to make into capital is on servers. nice.

Yeah, people will post about it to say "Hey look at this crazy site, and look at these idiots buying pixels." But it obviously works; I clicked on a few of the "pixlel" just out of curiosity.
