SIGGRAPH 2006 in Boston!

SIGGRAPH 2006 in Boston!

Yep, SIGGRAPH, the gigantic computer graphics conference, is in Boston again this year. The last SIGGRAPH I was at, I think, was in 1998. A lot has happened since then, and I think I need myself a bit of inspiration. I got myself a free exhibition pass, didn’t spring for the “Exhibits Plus” pass though (I may change my mind).

SIGGRAPH runs from Sunday, July 30 to Thursday, August 3, down at the Boston Exhibition & Convention Center. It should be a real pain in the butt to get to with the various problems with the Big Dig tunnels; I’ll probably end up driving to an outlying station and taking the T in from Alewife to South Station. Whee!

I hope I see some cool stuff…I could use a summer boost!

    I went to last year’s in LA.—my favorite exhibit was/is Emerging Technologies.

    If you’re driving into the city, you’d be better off taking the Purchase St. exit and parking at the end of Congress St.  There’s tons of lots there.  The one I usually use is only $9 a day, and you’ll be in walking distance to the Convention Center.  The tunnel problems would not really impact you as you’re going mainly North/South only.

    Justin: Thanks! I’ll look out for that!

    Lance: That’s right…I forgot about that! I used to work on Congress Street, and would drive into that lot. Wasn’t sure if it was still there, or what set of exits to take now :-) Thanks for the heads up!
