Today is July 4 - Independence day - recognition of the day the Declaration of Independence was first read publicly by Colonel John Nixon. (Although actually it occurred on July 8, 1776.) The 56 signers of the Declaration of Independence did not sign at the same time, nor did they sign on July 4, 1776. The official event occurred on August 2, 1776, when 50 men signed it. source: PurpleTrail.com
Autodesk employees in the United States have the day off to celebrate the founding of our country. So for those of you submitting feedback on our technology previews on the Autodesk Labs site, fear not, we will answer tomorrow. For now, we will enjoy the day.
The site is still up though. I guess you could say the lights are on, but nobody's home.
As we do every year on this day, only relaxation is alive in the lab today.
