"If an exchange between two parties is voluntary, it will not take place
unless both believe they will benefit from it. Most economic fallacies
derive from the neglect of this simple insight, from the tendency to assume
that there is a fixed pie, that one party can gain only at the expense of
another."
- Milton Friedman

This is the slide deck from my GDC 2013 presentation titled "Low-Level Thinking in High-Level Shading Languages". This talk highlights how low-level thinking can help you write faster shader and shows examples of how high-level constructs map to GPU hardware instructions.
