I have received several hundred perhaps over a thousand email Happy Birthday emailed wishes. The birthday wishes were all really nice. Thank you.
Here is one example from the many including poems.
"Happy birthday, Shaan.
Thanks for all you hard work on the blog and beta site.
You make it easy to forget that autodesk is such a large company. It's nice to feel a part of a community."
This is all thanks to my boss and also Lynn Allen's blog post...For some of the doctored photos posted publicly well as in the private Autodesk beta forums there will be consequences. :-)
I thought a nice photo of my boss Shawn Gilmour while we were recently in Japan might be well received. Did I mention it is employee review time and I have the best boss?
