Meet: real time soft shadows using area light sources

Hey folks,
Because so many of us are in the required 600 course right before our lab meeting, we are pushing back our lab meeting time to 330p Fridays.
We will meet today. Please make sure to come if you can to our meetings, even if I'm not able to post something about the meeting beforehand.
Today we'll talk about an nvidia white paper I ran across from March 2011, which represents a significant advance in soft shadowing:
Louis Bavoil. 2011. Multi-View Soft Shadows. NVIDIA white paper. Louis also has his own web page.
We will probably also spot and skim a bit as well.
