When I started this blog in April 2007, it was about showcasing free technology previews that were available via Autodesk Labs. Hence the name, It's Alive in the Lab. For some years now, it's about showcasing Autodesk technology. Despite the true intent of this blog, my favorite blog posts are the weird ones — the ones that show my personality. As I have said all along, a blog post without a picture might as well be a discussion forum post. A blog post without personality might as well be a press release.
So with this in mind, here are my 19 personal favorites from 2019 in chronological order:
Thanks to all the It's Alive in the Lab readers who still make this blog possible even though the posts no longer feature "free" stuff. This is my 3,484th post on this blog. Now that I am part of our Strategic Foresight team in the CTO organization, some of you have noticed that I am blogging less. Our Strategic Foresight team helps continuously identify and articulate long-term forces of change and their implications to reveal critical insights shaping our future. We work with Autodesk leaders to develop a point of view that addresses and shapes a preferable future that delivers value for our customers and our business. I am thankful to those who read the few articles that I occasionally post. If a tree falls in the woods, but no one hears it, it does not make a sound. Here's looking forward to another year of limited but sound blogging (bad puns and all) in 2020.
Favoritism is alive in the lab.
