1976 was philadelphia. we went there so we could stay in one of the hotel's that had the outbreak of Legionnaire's [sp?] Disease; we all got callbacks from the CDC about how we were feeling [i felt good about the SIGGRAPH conference, thanks]. i'll never forget the double desserts we ordered [and ate] at a restaurant called the Black Banana
as i see more names go buy i'm increasingly sorry not to be joining you
best regards to all
>You young whipper-snappers! I remember when it was called the "film show". In the early days (~1978), after showing a few reels from well known contributors, the organizer/projectionist would shout out "did anyone else bring something to show?"
Newbie. I remember when they made an announcement that "there's going to be a film show at XXX. If you brought anything to show, give it to me and we'll show it."
If memory serves, that was in Chicago, but I can't recall the year. Must have been after 1976 (my first Siggraph).
