"You cannot strengthen the weak by weakening the strong. You cannot help the wage-earner by pulling down the wage-payer. You cannot help the poor by destroying the rich. You cannot help men permanently by doing for them what they could and should do for themselves."
- Abraham Lincoln

Pictures from the summer of 2006. There are photos from home in Markham, but also from Montreal, Madison, Boston and Dallas. The biggest highlight of this period was definitely visiting the Siggraph conference in Boston. Just way too much information to squeeze into my head in just 5 days, but definitely lots of cool stuff there.

This is the first gallery taken with my new digital camera. After upgrading I've got a renewed interest in photography and have experimented quite a lot with stuff like HDR and cubic environment photos. I'm still working on a solution for presenting HDR photos on the web, but I've added a nice java applet to let you look around in a cubic environment. I've added five such cubemap to this gallery. Expect to see more of that in future galleries.
