The postings on It's Alive in the Lab are my own personal opinions and do not represent Autodesk's view in any way. In addition, my opinions are subject to change. By definition, a blog is a chronology of information - including opinions. As a result, you should consider that out of date blog postings may not necessarily reflect my current opinion on a given topic.
Although this blog is not the official Autodesk opinion, endorsement, or recommendation, It's Alive in the Lab is authored by an Autodesk employee. This approach provides direct contact between customers and Autodesk personnel most familiar with our newest technologies. It is an effective method in breaking down the barrier that separates customers from Autodesk developers. In addition, blog readers get content that, although more informal, is more timely.
