As I attempt to get caught up from being away there are a few pats on the back that I would like to share.
First to the group over at civil3d.com, for very quickly receiving their 100,000th page view. Few groups have contributed to advancing our collective industry as has Engineered Efficiency, Inc, and for achieving this milestone I congratulate them.
Next, to the following Autodesk University 2006 instuctors. They received the highest ratings from their class attendees for the specified categories:
HIGHEST RATED SPEAKER in 90min SESSION
Louis Marcoux "Animation Rigging concepts for Advanced 3ds MAX"
HIGHEST RATED SPEAKER in 90min HANDS-ON LAB
John Beltran "Introduction to Dynamic Blocks"
HIGHEST RATED SPEAKER in 3.5hr SESSION
Jay Tedeschi and Derrick Smith "Using Autodesk Inventor for Simulation"
HIGHEST RATED SPEAKER in a LARGE CLASS
Matt Murphy "The Do and Donts of Dynamic Blocks Revealed"
HIGHEST RATED FIRST-TIME AU SPEAKER
Kevin Robinson "Power Tools of AutoCAD Mechanical"
Great Job to you all!
Lastly, I congratulate all bloggers, users of YouTube, Amazon reviewers, Wiki contributors, posters to flickr, the MySpace community, bidders and sellers on eBay, iTunes downloaders, discussion group'ers, open source developers, and everyone else that helps define Web 2.0.
Because in their December 25, 2006 / January 1, 2007 edition Time Magazine made us all "Persons of the Year" for controlling the Information Age, along with all of the good and bad (spelling & grammar) that that entails.
