I was going to reply with the same answer. If only you saw the amount of
exposure and free publicity the guy got. If he were not so young, I doubt he
would have gotten any air time to promote his cause. It's that element of
character (the dream of a young man, yet to become a millionaire) which
played a major role.

Last month I helped a guy who thought he was going to make something unique
by developing a pure-CSS million dollar page. It's all nonsense.

Best wishes,
