Hi ho, hi ho,...

it's off to SIGGRAPH I go...

A rite of passage that many fellow geometers have gone through: I will be hanging out with the only group of people who can hope to get both Turing awards and Academy awards (take that, C. P. Snow).

I go to do God'sTuring's work: presenting some results on theoretical analyses of GPU algorithms at the GP2 workshop. If I can make it through the workshop without getting into any arguments about the value of theory, I will consider it a success.

SIGGRAPH gets over 2,000 attendees; considering how we do cartwheels at SODA when we get 300 folks, I expect significant culture shock.

Update: Did I say 2,000 ? I mean 20,000. Sigh....
