About the 'One
The One Pixel
Website was created to be the first with the smallest website
theoretically possible. The website has some real content, animation
and even features a link to an other website.
The white pixel in the center is transmitting a poem in Morse
code. Morse code uses short and long beeps to create characters.
What hath God wrought?

B. Morse (1791-1872) was a painter and founder of the National
Academy of Design. In 1832, while on a ship returning from Europe,
he conceived the basic idea of an electromagnetic telegraph. Experiments
with various kinds of electrical instruments and codes resulted
in a demonstration of a working telegraph set in 1836, and introduction
of the circuit relay. This made transmission possible for any
distance. With his creation of the American Morse code, the historic
message, "What hath God wrought?" was sucessfully sent
from Washington to Baltimore.
The 'One Pixel
Website' was inspired by the work of Alan Outten who created the
great website www.guimp.com.
While not trying to copy his work, like some others, I felt there
was a boundary that needed to be reached.
