Hello friends,

Just a note about computer graphics: CG pioneer and Pixar co-founder Alvy Ray Smith has completed an amazingly comprehensive book on the origins and development of computer graphics. It is in press right now with MIT Press and is named, “A Biography of the the Pixel.” It will be available in Sept 2021. I have a pre-press version and it’s superb, its coverage of humankind’s expressiveness in art ranging from the cave paintings of Altamira to Toy Story.

To Infinity and Beyond!
