    That site was actualy extortion or perhaps fraud. This is just genius.

    People know exactly what they're giving their money to. I doubt this one will get shut down because it's a hoax either..

    Yeah but the nature of it means the site might grow in popularity which is a lot of exposure. At the end of the day a company could get a lot of exposure for 100 dollars, not much really!

    True, but could he not make money doing something useful instead?

    Damn. It seems to be getting quite a lot of exposure in the press and whatnot, so the site will probably be very popular soon. He should be able to sell all of the pixels, which will make him a millionaire, and of course he can always expand it.

    Can you make at least a hundred grand by doing nothing? Well, except for coming up with an awesome idea...

    Why would he consider making it burger flipping..

    Why isn't what he's doing useful?

    That's really amazing. Whenever I see something so ingenious, yet so simple, I slap my forehead (or sometimes someone else's) and say "why the hell didn't I think of that?".

    Why, God, why?

    Good luck to him.

    Explain this to me: this basically depends on people clicking an advertiser's link, right? Why are people clicking?

    They don't have to click for him to make money. He makes money simply by selling the space.

    Yes, but:
    a) people are buying space with the expectation that people will click on their link
    b) people obviously ARE clicking (look at the case study page).

    Why are people clicking? Are they bored? Stupid? What?
