Siggraph 2002 in San Antonio, Texas will be remembered as the Siggraph where America discovered the cellphone. Apparently cellphones in America are not equipped with vibra or silent mode, as everyone seems to be all too eager to have their cellphone ring incessantly during the conference sessions and make public their phone conversations. “I have a cellphone.” “Call my cell!” “I’ll give you my cell number.” “I’m at the convention center.” Oh please! Welcome, America, to the 20th century!
