Data expands to fill available space right? So when you had a 1k Sinclair ZX81 it didn't take that long, but with the 16k RAM pack it took a little longer to fill. Then it was easy to fill 48k on the Spectrum. Next thing and, despite the apocryphal story linking this to Bill Gates, we did indeed breach the 640k a PC came with. A 1.44MB floppy disk didn't last much longer. A 4Gb iPod can only store 1000 songs. Now 10Gb doesn't seem so much because that is barely the contents of 3 DVD's. My last PC came with a 200Gb hard drive and I have already filled over half of it (and I haven't ripped a fraction of my CD's yet).
So it is refreshing to see something go the opposite direction. Forget your DVD, Dobly Digital 5.1, Progressive Scan, SCAD, 12 disc special edition. This is the first* Star Wars film in less than 200k. Clicky Clicky to take a look. Wait for it to say "Foldsfive Presents" - that is the beginning. I figure that if you have read all that geeky crap you are the sort of person who will appreciate it. I'm guessing most people will give up at "16k RAM pack" :-) I should say that the GIF/film/idea is courtesy of the excellent but hugely politically irreverent B3ta Web Site.
* Don't try arguing The Phantom Menace is the first Star Wars film. Just don't.
