I am still on sabbatical relaxing but all that means is I get to work only when I want to. ;-)
I have began planning my schedule for June after I have to go back to work. I am planning the topics as well as getting prepared for questions and answers as I really enjoy the Q&A for all things Autodesk as well as geek topics. I love a good challenge being a former mechanical designer out in the industry trenches and have used many products both Autodesk ones and non-Autodesk. I consider my use and trying to keep up on many of them a skill I termed CADidextrous like the rare ambidextrous people that can be right or left handed.
I see software and computers as a tool or barrier in design. The best thing is for the applications to be more transparent so you can focus on your design as that is a huge task in its own right, but also assist you when you need. Imagine designing without worrying about the limitations of the soap bar mouse or translating the design idea in your mind to the steps to get it done in the application, ah that's the spot we should all be aiming for but no USB port in the skull as that is taking things a little too far.
As with any of my travels I have a standing invitation to join me for dinner or breakfast to chat as well I am game for any local hiking or photo excursions even snake and scorpion photo stalking.

I love Phoenix for the desert photography which I recently had an image I took selected to be shown in an upcoming independent movie.I earned that as I got 4 flat tires in 4.5 seconds the day before at Camelback but that is a story I am trying to forget.
I have not been to Detroit before, but I have been to Lansing Michigan and the people were awesome.
