    I don’t know about you, but I get severe anxiety if i’m not online for more than 15 minutes constantly checking my email, Facebook and Twitter so when Donothingfortwominutes.com came onto my radar yesterday, it was a real challenge trying to  not touch my keyboard  for two minutes and I failed miserably.

    Founded by Alex Tew, the brains behind Million Dollar Home Page- a site that made him a million dollars, in a few months, back in 2005.

    Alex has launched a number of different projects since Million Dollar Home Page including Internet Conga Line, Sock and Awe and OneMillionPeople, none giving him the level of traction that Million Dollar Home Page once had, but could this be his next big hit? The site has gone from Zero to 1 million unique visitors in 6 days.
