Oh man I am so excited that you are doing an AMA!

One of the hardest decisions of my life was choosing to pursue a degree in computer science over architecture. I have always hoped to eventually work on designing CAD software as it combines my love for both programming and drafting.

My Question: The majority of my experience lies in developing algorithms to efficiently make use of clustered systems. Do you see this being an increasingly useful/marketable skillset as computer clusters drop in price, becoming increasingly accessible to the companies that make use of Autodesk's tools?

Thank you so much for taking the time to do this!

P.S. I would also like to say how much I appreciate that the Autodesk suite is free for students. It has provided me with invaluable experience in software that would be otherwise out of my financial reach.

That's a really good comparison! Concise but gets across why the way he did the releases was inherently problematic.

I'd say that the analogy could be stretched a little bit further by saying that instead of reporting it he released the entire companies bank info online. Had relevant information. Exposed corruption. But also released a ton of unrelated information that could be potentially harmful in the hands of adversaries.

I bet they have some level of recovery for corporate partners who have deep pockets. They know their drives better than anyone.
