One thought on “Weekend miscellany

  1. The Catmull talk is marvelous. I interned at Pixar and he ate lunch with the interns and spoke with us on a few occasions, so I’ve heard a lot of these stories and principles but the talk still had loads of great material that was new to me.

    Thanks for sharing.
