John Carmack Sort Of Interview Thing

The parts of this Beyond3D “interview” that aren’t absolutely unintelligible to me are very interesting.

It should be noted that a power function is a strictly empirical approximation of a surface’s specular response, so other specular approximations shouldn’t be looked at as just approximating a power function.

Well, yeah.  I mean, no duh.

God, I love John Carmack.
