It would seem some of my favorite JS mammoths (p01, mr doob) have just finished a one-kilobyte contest called js1k.

The rules are insane.

  1. Create a fancy pancy Javascript demo
  2. Submissions may be up to 1k. (And not crash)
  3. Externals are strictly forbidden, unlike “some” contests. (Good luck minifying jQuery though!)
  4. Must work on current fx, sa, ch and o. (Let’s level the playing field)
  5. Minification and hacks allowed. (Go nuts)
  6. Bonus points if your submission fits in one tweet 😉
  7. Last day to submit is 10 September 2010

The results are stunning.
