Mosaic... Technological Wonderment

My friend Lilia tagged me in her version of this on Facebook tonight. I rarely do the things like this that people tag me on, but this one was so interesting I had to do it... It makes me want to do another one.

But it also got me thinking about the chain of people all doing different jobs that it would take to even make something as "simple" as this 9-image mosaic representing my life possible.

Lilia to show it to me, people to show it to her, people to create & maintain Flickr, people to create & maintain "Big Huge Labs", people who host it, people on flickr to post images, people to pass along the images to the posters, people to take the pictures, people to make cameras & computers... Even without going back any farther than the beginning of R&D for the mosaic creation software, we're talking 1000s upon 1000s of people. Possibly hundreds of thousands.


Technology is just damn cool... This is phenomenal...
