Today was pretty slow, a chapters meeting, new infrastructrure and ideas for rolling up ACM membership in SIGGRAPH membership to cut down on confusion. Had a nice lunch out by the pool (with topless sunbathers!).
Afterwards we took a tour of the convention center. In honor of George Lucas giving the keynote they have a X-Wing mockup in the lobby. They also have a Mars rover over in the South Lobby.
After picking up chapters schwag, picking up the Animation Festival DVD's we settled down to a great Korean dinner at a restaraunt with floaty, water ball in the center, very cool. (pics to come later)
Tomorrow is first day of courses and I am torn between Digital Impostors (making CG replacements for actors) or the ETech Panel on Interactive Narrative. Facade was released a few months ago (finally!) and I am wondering if it has made a splash in academic circles yet.
Signing off from warmm sunny and smoggy LA!
