Welcome two new Autodesk development blogs

I think it's always a good thing when a knowledge-based community gets bigger and the sources more prolific.

So I'd like to point out two new blogs by Autodesk development experts:

I'm a veteran of a good number of training classes and seminars of both of these gentlemen, and they should be a great addition to the CAD development blogging ecosystem.

If you ever get a chance to meet Brian, you have to ask him to show you one of the more simple but mind-bending demos... I spent years looking at Inventor drawings of 3D parts and assemblies - and one day he shows me a simple application which rotates the view of the drawing in 3D (normally you can only pan/zoom in a "2D" drawing). But it turns out that the "2D" drawing was 3D all along - all of a sudden you could see the 3D parts that were "behind" the 2D drawing, titleblock, etc. Very weird and somewhat psychodelic for people in the CAD world, at least (CAD drawings are supposed to be like digital paper, right?).
