Technology, as it turns out, is more than just a tool to advance our understanding and simplify our daily lives. It is a gift, waiting to be given. It can mean the difference between isolation and inclusion. It can move the human heart from desolation to joy. For the recipients of such a gift, the world is forever shifted.

The current economic situation has made it difficult for people in many professions to find jobs. The computer graphics community is no exception. While the annual SIGGRAPH conference is rife with opportunities for networking and locating job openings in computer graphics, unemployed job seekers are typically in financial flux -- and as a result, may have difficulty affording the cost of registration.
The annual ACM Web3D Conference is a major event which unites researchers, developers, entrepreneurs, experimenters, artists and content creators in a dynamic learning environment.
