Indeed, congrats to Jacob.  Note that he was one of the Expert Reviewers
for the proposal for the IEEE Milestone for Utah's Computer Graphics work,
and that a bronze plaque was dedicated at the Univ. of Utah on March 24.
Jacob, as well as Jeffrey Yost, were in attendance, and I was the IEEE
History Committee Advocate for this Milestone.  See the extensive
documentation for it here
Both Jacob's book as well as Alvy Ray Smith's *A Biography of the Pixel* were
important sources for information for this project, and Alvy was a key
organizer and participant with me for this 2-day event.
