Siggraph 2005 - Day 1

This past week, my buddy Alex and I headed to LA for Siggraph, an annual/awesome Computer Graphics conference. Ohhhh man it was soooo amazing.

This was my first Siggraph and thus I was freakin' out due to the overabundance of good times. I looooved it. There was a job fair, booths and demonstrations from basically every single company that I have ever wanted to work for, an insanely awesome emerging technologies exhibit and more and more.

Not only did I have an amazing time and get to see a bunch of my old friends from Alias, but I made some magnificent new friends too. I met lots of cool people from SCAD. Actually, it is almost ridiculous how great people from SCAD are, (e.g. Matthew, Taylor and Sean) but alas the rumour/truthfulness was more than proven at Siggraph.

Well enough chatting for now, here are pics from Siggraph Day numero uno!
