wow, UNC really is everywhere

This is the first day of the visualization conference proper. Until now it's been two smaller sub-conferences, both very cool in their own right.

I came downstairs for the morning session and found that there was at least one UNC person (current student, faculty, or alumnus) visible no matter where I looked. Now, granted, some of this is due to the fact that Vis overlaps very closely with the graphics research in which UNC is heavily invested, but it also seems to be true in general... It's useful having people to call in just about any organization with the least bit of graphics going on.

Seattle weather report: dreary, overcast, wind picking up, not raining right this second... but there's an offsite, somewhat outdoor reception tonight, so it may just be saving up for a meteorological onslaught the moment people get on the boat.
