I don’t really read all that many novels annually (perhaps 4 or 5).
But I read a lot of papers relating to computer graphics. I probably read about 60 or 70 papers all the way through each year, and I probably read about 200 or so papers part way through, and I probably read about 1000 abstracts or so.
Since most papers are about 5 to 10 pages long, that means that I probably read about 1500 pages worth of papers and abstracts every year. And that would be the equivlelant of about six 250-page books. And not to mention the technical (computer graphics) books I read…
Hmm, I think that I am beginning to realize why Larry and Tony think that I know so much about computer graphics for my age.
Oh, and then there’s also the SIGGRAPH procceedings, of which I read through most of. And the SIGGRAPH course notes…
My goodness. I never really realized before now how much I read about computer graphics. Tee hee!
(Of course, please note that I’ve only really had a comprehensive resource of computer graphics papers for the past year or so, since I discovered researchindex.com. Before then, I had to search the 'net rather hap-hazardly. The numbers given above only really apply to this past year (2001-2002), which is when I found researchindex.com.)
