As a DWF Technical Evangelist, I started blogging by supplying Shaan Hurley with guest articles that he would post on his blog, Between The Lines, for me. On February 14, 2006 I started my own blog, Beyond the Paper, using Shaan's naming strategy where the emphasis was on DWF files and what you could do with them beside just printing. There are 916 posts on Beyond the Paper -- most of which I authored.
When our team's DWF work grew into a more formalized presence for Autodesk Labs, I defected from the DWF-related blog to It's Alive in the Lab. I wrote my first article on April 10, 2007 entitled "It's alive. It's alive. It's alive." (an allusion to the original Frankenstein movie) which described the mission of Autodesk Labs.
Not counting Beyond the Paper, this is my 2000th blog article for It's Alive in the Lab. A blog is a novel written one page at a time. This is the Autodesk Labs story. This is my story. Thanks to the Autodesk Labs community whose readership keeps the blog going. The 3,411 comments on this blog reflect our dialog about people, technologies, utilities, and thoughts that make up Autodesk Labs.
Sewing words together like body parts is alive in the lab.
