The ultimate aim of this blog is to make Autodesk customers or potential Autodesk customers aware of technology previews available from Autodesk.The hope is that awareness from the blog (which gets magnified via Facebook and Twitter) leads to participation which leads to feedback which leads to improved technology. It's much that "This is the house that Jack built..." fable. Quite frankly, I am doing a good job only when the technology previews get that participation and meaningful feedback. Speaking of that, here are the technology previews currently available:
But as an aside, I have instrumented It's Alive in the Lab with Google analytics. This allows me to capture some metrics associated with my efforts on generating awareness. Here are some fun insights that I was able to glean using data from the last 30 days.
Most readers are between 45 and 64 years old.

Most readers are men.

Though mobile and tablet computing are on the rise, most readers visit the blog at work where they have a desktop machine. Facebook and Twitter stats are the inverse of this.
Some of the popular blog content last month included:
Thanks to everyone who continues to read this blog. If a tree falls in the woods, but no one hears it, it does not make a sound. If a technology previews, but no one provides feedback, it does not improve.
Analytics are alive in the lab.
