Last year, I didn't get to do much besides talk to people about book projects (well, listen to my boss talk to people about book projects, really). I assume it will be just as busy this year, but I think it will still be fun. Actually, I'm hoping that it's slightly less busy so that I'll have time to see more stuff.

I think we get a number of exhibit-only passes. We usually give them to our authors who are in the area of wherever SIGGRAPH happens to be that year. I might be able to snag some of those passes if we have extras . . .

Well, you can get an "Exhibits Plus" membership for $95, which might still be more than your school would be willing to spend on you. I'll see what I can do.

Yeah I saw that but I also saw the list of things/programs for educators, and I can't even begin to tell you how badly I want in on those. Going under the theory that there's no hamr asking I think I'm going to e-mail my department head as I think a week at siggraph would be very very very very beneficial (considering I teach all the areas that the conference is about), maybe he cna con our friends at PTC into sponsoring us.

*wants*

Just wrote my department head an e-mail entitled "Christmas in August". Fingers crossed that he can figure out some way to get me in as I am now desperate to attend. I have a feeling I will be breaking down and getting an exhibit hall pass if nothing else so that I can spend 3 days wandering the aisles and lusting after things (also hopefully acquiring freebee swag and posters and neat stuff for my classroom).

*wants to go sooooooooooo bad*
