Breaking Blog Silence

January 4, 2008 at 2:03 am (Journal)

It’s been a bit since I’ve posted anything here. I have had more time than usual to explore my interests at work so I have had less of a need to do much reading at home. I can’t post about things I’m doing for work so in the meantime the blog must suffer. Take that, blog. I’ve updated my website, so feel free to look here. I hope to start updating more frequently. If you’ve read anything cool lately, drop me an email.

SIGGRAPH delay

August 13, 2007 at 8:28 pm (Journal)

Obviously my daily reporting of SIGGRAPH did not work out as planned. There were way too many things going on for me to be updating the blog daily. I am now home and will be pulling highlights from the conference for discussion here. In the meantime, you can check out what Leo Hourvitz had to say about the last few SIGGRAPHs. Very detailed notes make for an interesting read.

SIGGRAPH Day 1

August 5, 2007 at 2:16 pm (Journal)

This blog will take a more personal slant for the next few days. I want to try and do daily updates on SIGGRAPH. It’s early in the morning of Day 1. I’m preparing to go register and attend the first course of the day. I believe I will attend the Pixar course “Anyone Can Cook”. It looks to cover lots of tidbits about food rendering and lighting techniques/choices they used in the movie. I was also interested in the Photon Mapping course by Wann Jensen but offline techniques are probably less applicable to me in everyday work. In the afternoon I think I will catch the last half of “State of the Art in Massive Model Visualization” or “Practical Least-Squares for Computer Graphics”.

I believe I’ll update this evening after the Fast Forward session and encourage anyone at the conference who happens to read this to post their 1st day experience too!
