Because there were many new members to the Executive Committee,
this first meeting was a retreat-type meeting. The Myers-Briggs
personality profile was administered by a local facilitator. Most of
the meeting was spent discussing the potential impact of the "Hub"
plans for the siggraph.org web site and brainstorming on the focus
of the organization.
Significant progress was made on Masa Inakage's intial proposal
for an ACM SIGGRAPH online art community site within the Graphics
Hub. The rationale for such a site is based on the perception in the
international arts community (of which both Masa and Jacki Morie are
a part) that ACM SIGGRAPH is not as sensitive to the concerns, needs
and interests of this group as it could be. It is hoped that this
site will serve to address the various needs of artists and provide
a forum for new ideas, discussions and resources. A full proposal
and timeline were drafted by Masa Inakage and Jacki Morie during the
meeting. This site is expected to be online in time for the SIGGRAPH
2003 Conference and will be publicized there. Eventually, this site
will include an online arts show that focuses on new emerging talent
that could be curated by a more established artist.
