After rereading my first eMail, it seems my tone was a little harsh. My goal at SIGGRAPH it to guide you, the reporters, to capture the best parts of being at SIGGRAPH in a website. This is the first year this is being attempted, and I'd love to do a great job. SIGGRAPH is a tough crowd, things have to be great at SIGGRAPH or they get passed by pretty quickly. In order for you to convey how cool SIGGRAPH is, you need to experience it. My feeling now is that you should spend half of you time experiencing and half writing.
SIGGRAPH is intense and extremely cool. It is fun to have something
good to show people. If we do this website well, you will all have more
doors open for you in the SIGGRAPH community. That's a very good thing.
I'd like us to have 3 major meetings and 3 or 4 shorter meetings. Saturday night 6PM for dinner & first major meeting.
Sunday morning, short meeting, get credentials, get oriented.
Monday 6:30 PM Figueroa. short status meeting, then go to reception.
Tuesday - meet individually depending on needs.
Wednesday evening - this is where we will know what we are creating and how to make it really cool.
Thursday - short status before reception.
Friday, meet to gather "the coolest thing you've seen", the "major themes of S2001",
The general schedule for SIGGRAPH is split into the following time blocks: 8:30+, 10+, lunch (12:15+), 2, 4, 6-8, night
Sunday, Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday
Meet 9AM. go to south lobby office.
