John Carmack's keynote speech

http://www.monstaquake.com/admins/r...2002_Speech.mp3

It's a VERY long speech, but very informative at the same time. The most juicy bits come out when he is talking about the convergance of 3d games technology and cinematic rendering technology.

Here is a quote (about 40 minutes in):

"No reason why you can't do pixar quality images on upcoming hardware"

Array,

For those (like me) that don't know, can you tell us who this guy is?

woah! you're absolutely right... I was falling asleep until I started hearing him talk about render passes and the ability to simulate radiosity with 500 pass renderings in realtime!

Oh: and pay close attention to what he say's about "REAL WORK" and rendering and his refferences to the old SuperComputers...

Omg!
I bought "The Ultimate Doom" long ago. It came with a poster and John Carmack's autograph is on it (printed of course ,along with the rest of the team's autographs)!
I must either sell it or hang it up against the wall again.

I haven't heard the MP3 yet but I think it's similar to this here

For those who'd rather read than listen.
