First broadcast on October 3, 1989, Gavin Miller discusses early breakthroughs in digital modelling of various natural phenomena.

Included are examples of projectile motion under gravity, friction and cohesion, scan line rendering, ray tracing, bump map displacement maps, fur shaders, texture mapping, environmental mapping, kinematic modelling, goal directed behavior, hairy spiders, intelligent snakes, fractal modelling, and chaotic behavior of complex systems.

Included is a special animation visualization of atmospheric changes during the apocalyptic end-of-the-world event that might occur through global warming and nuclear fallout.

Light hearted exploration of natural phenomena from the early days of computer animation.

Inspiring presentation.

High Tech heroes episode 39 Directed by Hud Nordin.

Host Sherwin Gooch interviews Bruce McDiffett, ILM alumni, and they discuss the future of society and technology.

First aired in 1992, in Sunnyvale, CA

High Tech Heroes, Episode # 38, Directed by Hud Nordin.

Sherwin Gooch interviews Bruce McDiffett, ILM veteran, Mathematician, and Futurist thinker.

Bruce Advocates video production, social thinking, new technologies of communication and continued learning. He diagrams a model of an octagonal broadcast network, that seems remarkably like the youtube.com environment today. And this interview was in 1992.

Otherwise, the interview is filled with awkward gaffs, divergent trains of thought, and ultra nerd talk. A fascinating look at society - then and now.

Educational, historical, and beautiful.

Note: the original video was rendered with at 60 fps with each field a unique image, unfortunately, the digital conversion software duplicated a frame because of some "drop frame glitch" and there is a glitch in the movement. This was a product of editing and not the original render. Sorry.

High Tech Heroes with Sherwin Gooch, episode 10, part 2, directed by Hud Nordin: Cybenetician Heinz von Foerster discusses the founding of Cybernetics, and the possibility of achieving immortality through the downloading of a human menome into a machine.

In this context, a "menome" is to memes what a genome is to genes. A menome constitutes the sum total of all neural information of an individual organism, just as a genome comprises the sum total of all genetic information defining an organism.
