    This weekend I caught up with serial entrepreneur Alex Tew, founder of Million Dollar Homepage, the site that gained world-wide attraction in 2005 and made him $1million, who last week launched his latest project One Million People – a site where, for $3 people can add their profile to the virtual book which, once full at a million faces, will be printed for you to buy as a real coffee-table book for people to keep as a slice of digital history.

    Since Million Dollar Homepage, Alex has launched a number of projects including PopJam, The Facebook Conga and a version of ChatRoulette called Internet Conga Line.

    In this candid interview I ask him what his response is to people who are quick to call his ideas silly and what his plans are for the future.
