After 14 years online using various newsgroups, forums and VR Boboland to communicate in cyberspace, I felt it was time to finally start a blog. I have been contemplating this step for years now, but strangely enough the final push came from the movie "Julie&Julia", a quite funny comedy nobody should be allowed to see before dinner. The movie not only featured a quote from The Hitch Hiker's Guide To The Galaxy and showed that anyone (not only rats) can cook, but demonstrated how easy it is to start a blog and get hooked on it.
Some weeks ago, just before Siggraph, I tried Twitter but quickly discovered that a character limit is not something I enjoy - I quite like writing long posts. As a matter of fact, I have been using cell phones for over 10 years now but have managed to send less than 10 text messages during this period. But just give me a large keyboard and unlimited space and watch me going!
So here we go - I intend to share my thoughts on some of my favorite subjects including MAXScript, 3ds Max in Visual Effects production, Krakatoa development as well as Life, The Universe, And Everything.
