Celebrating Martin Luther King Jr. Day

Friday was Friday the 13th, and I didn't realize it until my boss, VP of Corporate Strategy, Jon Pittman, sent me this:


Today, I don't have that problem. I know what day it is. Autodesk employees in the United States have the day off to honor the life and work of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. He was a civil rights activist who fought for equality of people regardless of race. Ahead of his time, he was assassinated for his efforts. Today, though our society is not perfect, we have made great strides in treating people equally. The San Francisco Bay Area shines in this regard.

We will get back to responding to your technology preview feedback tomorrow. For today, we will think about how far we have come, and how far we have to go.

Dreaming is alive in the lab.
