I started this blog to vent ideas that I’m having. That’s about it! I think there are a lot of cool things going on out there in the realm of graphics, some of which people aren’t talking about. I guess a lot of it has to do with the noticeable gap between the academic world and the development/amateur graphics programmer world. I have a bit of a paper reading/scouring addiction so this is a catharsis for me. I’d like to hear anyone’s thoughts on the things I discuss here so feel free to comment or send me an email.

    I saw your post about this blog on Gamedev and thought I shold take a look. I liked what I saw.

    I’m very intrested in new graphics techniques and I read every paper I can get my hands on. Nice to see that you try to put the good ones in one place:)

    I’m doing my masters thesis this autumn about practical GI for dynamic indoor enviroments. Your blog might turn out to be a good resource.

    Keep up the good work!
