“A few weeks ago, a photographer named Jeffrey Martin finished stitching together one of the largest photographs ever created, an astounding 150-gigapixel panorama of Tokyo, captured from the top of the Tokyo Tower. At 600,000 pixels wide, it’s nearly 20,000 times bigger than the snapshots you take on your iPhone (and two times wider than the maximum width allowed by Photoshop).” – Wired.com

But like going to work, talking to friends, playing poker and so many other formerly in-the-flesh activities, perhaps we’re reaching a point where the “in person” part of that photographic act is increasingly irrelevant.” – Wired.com
