Notch recently changed up map generation from "make it up as you explore new areas" to 100% procedural generation of an infinite world based on a single seed value. Not only does this allow for better worlds that are more cohesive, but also allows them to be shareable with a simple string, number, or word. :)

This is why I love After Effects, the camera movements are awesome. By the way, nice background music.
