Friday morning: Me getting bored with some colleagues, doing whatever they call it, school work, duty kind of thing “de serviciu”.
One of my colleagues buys a newspaper.. what do I see? A huge article about some guy, from England. Dammit I’ve lost the article. Anyhow, this guy was searching a way to pay for his college taxes. When he got the great idea of turning his homepage into a million dots, and sell for a buck a dot, to anyone who wanted to put his logo on the site. A square of 10-by-10 pixels, roughly the size of a letter of type, costs $100. He issued a press release when he made $1000 and the news spread all around the media, Internet etc.
