Can't wait to hear about FLIP in particular. For those clueless like me. Here's about Cooper's Design Space:

I heard rumor that the Autodesk party may be on Monday night? Not sure yet. That's usually a big one.

Is this it for the list of parties? I thought by now there would be all the details and signups. Or maybe I'm missing a thread?

yep that's about it, even though more people are expected this year it seems almost not extra-curricular activities.

Just add a couple not mentioned here:


Going to Siggraph? Registration for The Foundry GeekFest is now open and filling up fast.

Ah ok, yikes. Things definitely seem to be getting tighter. Noticed some of the big companies aren't even having their usual booths this year either.

Thanks Malducin!

Yeah I was trying to get started an unofficial CGTalk party but apparently nobody is interested. I guess time to check out Point Moorea with my partner in crime.

Any word on a BLUR party this year? It was a real blast in '08!

The first rule of the Blur party, is that we dont talk about the Blur party.

Second rule of the Blur Party..... YOU DO NOT TALK ABOUT THE BLUR PARTY.

The Foundry is hosting a party at The Mayan Monday evening.

Details here (http://www.thefoundry.co.uk/articles/2010/07/06/68/the-foundry-geekfest-at-siggraph-2010/).

As for the Blur Party, Eyeon mentioned a few logistical details in a recent Fusion newsletter, probably on their site or in an RSS feed, but it won't get you any closer to finding an invite.

Sorry about that, not sure whether I pasted that in wrong or if their site changed but I've updated the post with this (currently) working link (http://www.thefoundry.co.uk/articles/2010/07/06/68/the-foundry-geekfest-at-siggraph-2010/). ;)
