All great achievements, but the Pneumatic Car Flipper sounds like the most fun.

Very pleased to see Ofer Alon, founder and (main) developer of Pixologic and ZBrush to be included. His efforts really have changed the industry. Congratulations!

I'm especially glad to see Rhythm & Hues getting a nod (in particular the brilliant folks involved who were name specifically) for their work with Voodoo. If only the world could be exposed to how incredible Voodoo is ... cg production in general would be so vastly different.
Congrats fellas, you deserve it!
