vacuums and pixels

“Operating a vacuum cleaner is much like building a digital photograph one pixel at a time.”
-erik maldre, 2008

I love the pronunciation key for “vacuum”. It’s vak-yoom. That just looks like a cool world. vak-yoom. Though yak-voom is even better.

Someday you’ll have to explain what you meant by that quote about vacuums and building a digital picture, because I fail to see the parallel between them.

How about this, “operating a vacuum cleaner is much like using the Photoshop erasesr tool set at one-pixel diameter.”

Ok, I now see the parallel. However wouldn’t that similarity apply to just about everything… Typing, bricklaying, baseball card collecting, cooking, painting, etc?
