Think of a grain of rice.

Think of a chess board.

Put one grain of rice on the first square of the chess board. Then put two grains of rice on the next square of the chess board. Keep on doubling the grain of rice for every square of the chess board. By the time you reach the end of the chess board all the rice in all the world will not be enough.

In 1973 Steve Sasson created a camera.

It was the size of a toaster.

It weighed 4,2 kg.

It had a resolution of 0.01 megapixels.

It took 30 black and white images.

It stored pictures on a cassette tape instead of a spool.

Steve took his new camera to the board of Kodak. They were not impressed. They were in the business of people taking pictures, then they go to a shopping centre to have the picture developed using a chemical system.

This camera they said would cause them to compete with themselves. The board of Kodak pushed the technology aside and ignored it.

Fast forward a few years, 2008 to be exact. A tourist is walking along Golden Gate Bridge in San Fransisco. One of the Kiosk’s is a man selling camera’s. Kodaks.

“Would you like to buy a camera?”, He asks

“No, Thank You, the camera in my phone is taking excellent pictures.”

PANIC

PANIC

PANIC

The kiosk salesman rushes to his phone to make a call.

“They are putting camera’s in phones.” He screams

Kodak rushes to try develop the new technology in time, but it is too late. A company with 140 000 employees and worth $28 billion dollars filed for bankruptcy.
