The photostory of everything

A session at TakeOff 2013

Thursday 17th January, 2013

9:00am to 9:30am (PMT)

Have you ever realized that a picture is nothing but a collection of colored points? If each of them can be described by three numbers from 0-255, there are 256 ^ 3 = 16 777 216 possible pixels. So there is 2^4915200 different 640x480 images ((256 ^ 3) ^ (640 * 480)). What we could find in them if all had been generated?

Everything. For example - you reading this description on TakeOff Conference page, screenshot of Crockford's JSLint's source code from 2030, finally with 'let' and 'const' support, or mini tuna army fighting with giant star-nosed moles on yet undiscovered planet with every possible background, from every possible point of view. Is it even possible?"
