Real vs "Real"

From the SIGGRAPH blog:
An undercurrent that occasionally bubbles up in talks/comments is the feeling that graphics is "not real", that it is only "smoke and mirrors". Bruce Sterling (when he wasn't busy being pleased with himself) hammered this point home as well during the beginning of his keynote address. Given that from where I stand in theory-land, graphics is about as "real" as it gets, this was interesting and not a little surprising.

  1. true enough. what surprises me is to hear this self-deprecation from graphics folks.
