Three posts is a single day… perforated bovine, what is this world coming to?

I’ve just found out that I’ll be going to SIGGRAPH 2007 in San Diego, CA, on August 5-9. SIGGRAPH, for those who don’t know, is one of the world’s largest conferences for “digital innovators, creative researchers, award-winning producers, provocative artists, energetic executives, and adventurous engineers.” It’s where to find the cutting edge in 3D modeling, computer animation, and digital art. I’m technically going for my day job and I definitely won’t be presenting or exhibiting anything, but I’m adding a reference on the GPF Shows & Cons page just in case any Faulties will be in attendance (or possibly just in the area) and want to organize an ad-hoc gathering. (After all, I’m only on the West Coast every so often.) As such, I’ll probably post updates as more information develops.

Of course, this pretty much cinches that I won’t be going to Comic-Con International this year. I had pretty much abandoned hope for most convention travel this year since the little guy is still under a year old, but there’s always a part of me that dreams of at least making it back to our big two stops, Comic-Con and Dragon*Con. Alas, Comic-Con is just two weeks before SIGGRAPH, and I’m not sure I’m up to hours and hours of air travel that close together. That also puts any hope for Dragon*Con on the rocks, as it’s a scant three weeks after SIGGRAPH. While I’ll be going to SIGGRAPH on the company’s dime, meaning finances aren’t the issue, spending that much time on the road so close together would be pretty rough on our little family right now.

As usual, though, keep you eyes on the Shows & Cons page for official convention notices. Since SIGGRAPH isn’t an official GPF stop, I’m not sure how much coverage it will get on the GPF site, but it should get a good bit of face time here.
