Christin Dodman

Hi, sorry for contacting you this way.

My name is Christine Dodman and I work for webitpr, an
online news distribution company.

I noticed that you write about CAD and was wondering if you'd
like to receive any relevant news we handle in the future? Everything
we distribute is blogable so it's entirely up to you if you want to
share it with your readers.

Let me know if you are interested and the best way to send you
anything I think you would be interested in!

Best Wishes,


Mike Puckett

As the interviewer, I have to say it was a pleasure getting to sit down with Lynn. We had a pretty engaging conversation both on, and off the record. I look forward to speaking with her again in the future. The interview is still available on my blog: www.MikesCadBlog.com

Al Whatmough

nicely done showing up

Phillip Dodson

Is the interview available?

Lynn Allen

To be fair...Autodesk University has been open to the competition for the past two years...I even extended a personal invitation to some of the SWX folks to attend a couple of years ago. I believe all of the conferences are open now (except for ESRI).
I must admit I am/was surprised by all the attention I received at SWX World but I enjoyed the many conversations I had with the attendees. A big thank you to those of you who have written the supportive comments above!

Lauss Finkelstein

Was Lynn fired or she was there to see the blank screen ? :)

John Burrill

Lynn's a class act and a math geek. And I think it's good that her interest in CAD is bigger than one company's vision of it. I hope to see you in Orlando next year, Lynn.

Jeff Cope

Props to Lynn Allen for attending SolidWorks World and especially agreeing to an interview with a SolidWorks blogger. That interview could have gone south in a hurry but I don't think it did. I don't buy her explanation for the Monster.com job posting disparity between SolidWorks and Inventor but all in all I gained respect for her.

Randall Newton

I salute Lynn Allen for deciding attending SWW was important, and for so graciously putting up with everything stirred up by her presence there.
