Nice article. You and others might also enjoy http://www.virtualglobebook.com/Under_the_Hood_of_Virtual_Globes.pdf, pages 26-52. I suspect you know of it, since your work is used on page 37.
Common depth buffer setups used in 3D graphics hardware to this day are woefully inadequate for the task. One can easily get artifacts known as z-fighting even with relatively limited scene depth range. Utilization of the ava...

Thanks! Yes I know about the book, I've been asked to review the chapter.

Hats! Good article on the TF2 practice: http://www.nytimes.com/2013/06/13/fashion/fire-when-ready-but-spare-my-hat.html?smid=tw-share&_r=0

Favorite quote: "This is the only job I’ve ever had where I’ve gotten into an argument about 17th-century Prussian headwear".

Wow, quite lovely visualizations; hypnotic. Though you need to know what you're looking at, but these are great for teachers. A few slides are a bit mysterious to me, such as Nyquist frequency (the frequency of a sharp polygon edge is infinite). One or two demos didn't work, and the perspective camera bit had some funkiness. But these are niggles! (Sorry, it's my nature.) Great stuff overall, much better than I could do, and it sets the bar high for others to surpass. And all in a web page format! (Though I wish I could link to individual slides. There with the niggling again.)

Eric Haines: glad you like it. The point of the nyquist slide is to show what happens when you try to compress a sinusoid beyond the sampling frequency / 2 (i.e. white/black/white/black). It just gets messed up.

The next slide (jaggies) shows that the infinite edge has been sampled into something with a finite/limited slope.

Oh, and one more reference (pointed out to me by Morgan McGuire): http://research.microsoft.com/pubs/79213/GH%202006%20p027%20Akeley%20Su.pdf

Free course? Or free book for beginners on interactive 3D rendering? Both! The MOOC is finally completed.

What a great place! A makerspace, with a mix of pros and hobbyists. There's like 4-5 classes going on any night of the week, along with various social activities. Lots of interesting people doing fun stuff. Get checked out on equipment and you can then use it any time. About the only downside is that you usually need to have a fair bit of disposable income to be a member from month to month.

Great for lunch, get the vermicelli with the pork roll (#22? #20? Somewhere in there), it's lovely.
