I'm back from SIGGRAPH. It all went really well. As usual I saw a ton of old friends. It is great to catch up and see what everyone is doing. As usual, there's a number of really cool papers that would be fun to implement, if I had more time.
The most exciting part was the amount of Linux on the show floor. Every major vendor was showing at least some Linux. I had a couple different people tell me that I had saved the industry by introducing Linux. It was a blast! We had our 3rd Linux 3D BOF. About 300 people attended and we had about 15 speakers over the two hours. It was a real good event. (Although next time we really need to have a microphone!) It's great to get so many people together. We'll post a summary on http://www.linux3d.org soon.
