Alvy Ray Smith is a true computer graphics pioneer, and one of the founders of Pixar. He wrote a memo nine years ago entitled A Pixel Is Not A Little Square, in which he teaches us simple-minded Euclidean types about what’s really going on with computer images. I don’t want to give away the ending, but: a pixel is a point sample.
At the same time, it's quite humbling.
