SIGGRAPH is also held, in all of its wide ranging, forward-thinking facets, this month. We have provided our readers with a preview section this year that will act as a guide to the animation interest areas. I would still encourage people to look in all of SIGGRAPH's nooks and crannies as well. SIGGRAPH is a crossroads of groups coming together -- from the hottest effects makers to the most brilliant astrophysicists, SIGGRAPH has something for everyone. I find SIGGRAPH very inspiring as one can see avant garde artistic projects that feature technology and experimental technology with an artistic angle. While this range can be both eye and mind-opening, it can be too much to comprehend in a short period of time. Because of the size and "noise" of SIGGRAPH, one would do well to sit down with all of the catalogues and plan a schedule that includes free time to discover the obscure and different, but focuses on the most valuable events for the individual. Otherwise, one can easily get distracted and six days later realize once in a life time opportunities passed by. SIGGRAPH is a tumultuous circus that is not to be missed. Here's hoping everyone has a great week at the Los Angeles Convention Center!
Until Next Time,
