In the "New Topic?" thread in irtc.stills, I suggested that maybe the new IRTC topic
would be "optimism", in response to Steve's rather optimistic post on 1/14.  I think
it would be a good pseudo
topic, given the current situation.  Any votes for "optimism"?

Seconding Verm's "primitive", I suggest to use only basic shapes such as
spheres, cylinders, cones, toruses .. no isosurface, no mesh, no blob
....Just to see what is possible and encouraging more imagination than pure
technique.

Another from myself: "The other side".

In order to decide quickly for the topic, so we can start asap working on
it, I propose to make the dead line for suggestion/decision within the next
6 hours.

Though some of you were on the same idea, I can say I am a little bit like
the 'initiator' on the thread, so, if no one minds, I also propose myself
to pronounce the final decision according to suggestions.

To give credit it was sort of derived from Christoph Hormann's post on 
p.competition on 12/11/2005 :-).

Hi Everyone,

How about turning Thomas de Groot's suggestion on its head, with a topic of
"Checkered Plane" ?

(i.e. Challenge people to come up with a new angle on an old cliche)

Cheers,
Alun.

A good idea but not fair to new posters, I think. It is hard enough to think of
something original without all the experienced folk using up all the ideas :-)

I think you should give it a couple of days as not everyone lives online.

Not bad.  Not sure I really understand it, but not bad.  My mind goes to 
optical illusions.

Probably true.  It's a good idea but maybe let the reflective sphere / 
checker plane thing stay pristine

Timely suggestions, and totally in the tradition of IRTC topics. But 
maybe too ambitious for the shortened time space.

Better for the shortened time perhaps.  From the Short Code contests we 
know that people respond well to "attenuated means" type challenges.
