Amy-Mae Elliott over at Mashable has done a really nice job finding cool geeky items for the office. You can check out the list here. My favorite is the Million Dollar Homepage poster. As Amy-Mae says it’s inpsiring to think about a simple idea well executed can be so successful. I hadn’t heard the story behind the graphic poster. In 2005 Alex Tew, a student from Wiltshire, England created a website to help raise money for university. The home page was made up of a million pixels and the image-based links were sold for $1 per pixel in 10 × 10 blocks. If you bought a block you provided a small image and a URL was linked to the image that directed traffic back to your site. By January 2006 the final 1,000 pixels were sold on eBay. How much did Alex raise all up? $1,037,100 in gross income. Brilliant.
