I am getting ready for my annual pilgrimage to SIGGRAPH (Special Interest Group for GRAPHics). This year marks my 10th SIGGRAPH in a row! I really love going to this conference. It always energizes me and makes me want to learn more about computer graphics.
This year it is in Boston. I've never been to Boston, so I'll spend a day and a half sightseeing before the conference starts. My friend John Verostek lives in Boston and plans on showing me around over the weekend.
I plan on taking a bunch of pictures and video, but I probably won't post them until I can get home to my desktop and image editing software. I'll jot down my blog posts in a notebook (the old kind that doesn't need batteries and won't get stolen) and transfer them to my blog when I get access to an Internet terminal. I could post via my cell phone...but that is just too painful...even with its tiny QWERTY keyboard.
I've added all the papers, classes, panels, and talks to my calendar. On average, I have 3 things I want to attend at any one time. On Sunday, I have 6 things! You can't see it all, which is part of the draw of SIGGRAPH.
