Where your host wishes himself a happy birthday, queries about the percieved quality of his commute-time podcasts, and reviews a number of cool papers in computer graphics.
- Lightcuts: A Scalable Approach To Illumination by Bruce Walters et. al. A very cool paper on rendering with hundreds, thousands, or even hundreds of thousands of light sources.
- Instant Radiosity by Alexander Keller. The paper that needed the framework of Lightcuts.
- GPU Gems 2, edited by Matt Pharr. Better than the original, lots of good stuff.
My birthday present was a new heart rate monitor from Polar USA. Expect a review soon.
