Image Description, by flipCode

Assuming your web browser didn't explode while trying to load that enormous image, you'll have surely realized by now that today is the Image Of The Day's 2nd anniversary! Just before August 11th, 1999, I managed to talk Luke Hodorowicz into snapping a shot of his engine for a new feature I wanted to launch on flipCode. 2 years later, as Luke and I discussed ideas for the 2nd anniversary image, he suggested featuring them ALL at once. Take a moment to look over more than 450 reader-submitted images! That's a heck of a lot of pixels, many of them arranged in ways that've no doubt inspired us all.

Cheers to everyone who's featured an image here. Keep 'em coming!

Happy Birthday IOTD !! :)

that smiley face was/is the best one of the lot :]

If you take all those images, with the right program, and another image, you could make one of those collage effects. Or is that passť?

Ahhh... remember the start of the IOTD, it was somewhere around the day I first found this place. The IOTD is the feature which made me come back to flipcode every day since...

"That's a heck of a lot of pixels, many of them arranged in ways that've no doubt inspired us all."

Yes, that's it. I'm rendering all of the right pixels, I just haven't gotten the order correct yet :)

very nice, how about adding links and saving this aside as the 'image of the day gallery' or something like that :)


August 11, 2001, 10:16 AM

Happy birthday IOTD!

Huge thanks for bringing it to us, Kurt!


August 11, 2001, 10:16 AM

"bwah, it's all fake"

Voila, this has been said too :)



August 11, 2001, 10:22 AM

I'm afraid that I have to join to group of freaks who remember them all.. especially that smiley face; I started to wonder where it'd gone after I missed it the first few scans of the image.. but it was there after all! *whew*
I also am very guilty of not ever submitting an image.. however I promise to soon.. well.. yea.. soon..... some day... kinda... when I get time.. ;P



August 11, 2001, 10:35 AM

I'm afraid to check out the itod when it is our 10th aniversary...


I remember a good deal of these, but I couldn't figure out where I came in.

640 x what? 2360?


August 11, 2001, 11:38 AM

I don't know how I would survive without Flipcode IOTD to keep me company every morning while I sip my coffee.

This site is a valuable resource and fun place to visit.
Kurt, you da' man!

(I love your space & science links too!)
