GDC isn't just a place to witness developers speaking passionately about their chosen craft, it's also a place to take part in random acts of nerdery, as evidenced by this year's "Painting with Pixels" project. A 20x8-foot wall sitting in the belly of the Moscone Center's North Hall holds 5,760 2x2-inch spots, each spot anxiously awaiting a colored block.

The shot above is how the wall looked as of 11:45AM ET today, and we plan to continue to track its transformation in the gallery below -- see how much it changed in just two and a half hours? It's like a video game time machine!
