I discovered #4 through him and I agree both with his summary and the paper itself --- canonical Huffman is astoundingly simple if you look at it in the right way, yet almost everyone doesn't.

ryg is also a member of the Farbrausch demogroup, which has released some amazing demos. This one is probably the most memorable: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3n3c_8Nn2Y

Yep. He did both while working at LucasFilm.

They should really teach this up in some computer graphics 101 -- it is crazy how many fringing artifacts you see in the wild. Also, is this the same Duff of Duff's device fame?

this is probably immediately evident as soon as you start going through his site, but fabian is a phenomenally smart guy. every one of his blog posts is gold if you care about things like graphics or compression.
