"Russell Kirsch says he's sorry.
More than 50 years ago, Kirsch took a picture of his infant son and
scanned it into a computer. It was the first digital image: a grainy,
black-and-white baby picture that literally changed the way we view the
world. With it, the smoothness of images captured on film was shattered
The square pixel became the norm, thanks in part to Kirsch, and the
world got a little bit rougher around the edges."
