An entrepreneurial young student in the UK has devised a simple way of raising the cash to pay for life through university without having to spend every weekend in Tesco's stacking shelves.

Called the Million Dollar Homepage, the idea of the site is to sell 1,000,000 pixels for $1 each.

Visitors can buy pixels, which are available in 100-pixel 'blocks' (each measuring 10x10 pixels) and then display an image/ad/logo of their choice in the space they have purchased. Customers will also have the chance to link the image through to a website of their choice as long as its not obscene or offensive.

The pixels you buy will be displayed on the homepage permanently for the life of the site.

The creator, Alex Tew, is 21 years and old hopes to keep the site running for at least five years, but hopefully much longer with the ultimate goal of making it “a kind of internet time capsule”.

Currently the site has sold over 52,300 pixels earning more than enough to put Tew through university.
