Evergeek Media reports that on January 8th of this year, the National Academy of Television Arts & Sciences (NATAS?) awarded our favorite John Carmack an Emmy award for Pioneering Development Work in 3D Game Engines, recognizing his work in realtime rendering technology. From the article:
"This is an incredible honor for John Carmack and id Software," says Todd Hollenshead, CEO, id Software. "We consistently push the limits of gaming technology, and it's great to be recognized for the passion and dedication we put into our games."
Congrats to John and all the hard-working grunts at id for their hard work and inspiration to the coding community.
