  • The title of this video should change with the times. But nothing lasts forever: here's the story of how I made it work, why it used to be easier to make that work, and how it all ties in to the White Cliffs of Dover and the end of the universe.

    I love how this video periodically gets recommended to us when the title is exactly right

  • Bruce Evans

    Let's congratulate Tom for creating something that isn't clickbait and viral at the same time

    This video MUST hold the world record of the most times a title had changed in the whole youtube history

    everyone's talking about how accurate the views are and how insane the code is but no one talks about how amazing the moral lesson of this video is, to keep and continue creating/building even if what you create may most likely be gone at some point because all that matters is how your works have contributed to something that could affect the future.

    As an IT professional this should be required viewing.

    This dude has the type of energy that a timetraveler would have

    2 years later, the code still works! It's exactly right when I'm writing this. Good job tom!

    I think this video could singlehandedly feed Tom's family for life. It's actually a genius way to get people to revisit a video, though I doubt he had any idea it would end up getting quite so much traffic. 59 mil and counting!

    Watched this at 59,385,800 Views. Don't know why it was recommended but I watched it anyway. I've always had huge respect for topics like this being explained in a way that I can understand it. Someone else could talk about this topic for hours and not get the message across but this one was nicely done. Will wait for a few months down the line to get back to this video and see if all of it still works.

    The level of awesomeness of this video is unrivaled. Story, within a story, within a story. The algorithm brought us here, but the universe wanted us to hear Tom's wisdom. After watching, what is your call to action? What resonated with me was to keep doing what I am doing, but, to make sure that what I am doing is building something, preferably something that is not dependent on the system it was made on/for. Food for thought.

    Only now I realize that this title has changed millions of times already. This video HAS to hold the record for the most changes to a video's title ever.

    More than one year later and it’s still 100% accurate

    I checked in when this video had 20m views, then 30m views. I honestly forgot about this until it turned up in my recommended again. It’s at 58m now, honestly quite incredible how the title is still accurate. I wonder how long it’ll take until this code supposedly loses touch with reality?

    Absolutely a spectacular lesson told in this video. Historical and modern smashed into an optimistic lesson on entropy. Genius work of creation here

    I love this video not just because of the counter (which is already brilliant) but the way he talks about entropy and building things anyway as they are what really mattered.

    I wonder how hard this was to code. This is still working and that's insane!

    It's lovely that it still works and as I re-watched the video I realized how amazingly Tom gave us a lesson and how he transitioned from fancy title to entropy and what it means for humanity.

    I love how this vid appears on my recommend every once in a while.

    This is crazy, not only the way he does it, but that it has so many views and more people are seeing it each day.
