The name was chosen as a play on Magee's name, Maximilian, and because Magee thought the site would be millions of interesting things.[1]

Magee also helped create and run tickerspy.

The Millions posted an open letter to the Swedish Academy in 2011 asking it to “stop the nonsense and give Philip Roth a Nobel Prize for Literature before he dies.”[2]
