CTN Time!

Hi All,
As usual I'll be attending the annual CTN Expo in Burbank next weekend, and this time I'll have the honor of representing Pixar.  I'll be giving a talk about our animation of "Inside Out" on Saturday morning, and I'll probably pop up at the Pixar recruiting booth and other places.  I'm looking forward to meeting up with old friends and students, and scoring some great art and books in the exhibit hall.  Hope to see you there!
