Thanks for the memories

I didn't want to just disappear without saying thank-you. My last day at Autodesk is this week and I'll now be doing some consulting while sailing our home to southern ports.

For me, the most rewarding part of the job was simply reaching out and talking to you all. I wasn't always welcome and what I had to say wasn't always what people wanted to hear, but I felt most of you gave me a chance to say my piece and over time, it seemed that some trust was established. I know that while I was involved, we were always fighting a battle to do the most we could for you all. I realize that we didn't always deliver to your expectations, but we were always trying to do the most with the resources we were given.

The 3ds Max development team is really one of the best that I've worked with over the years and the leadership there has been a big part of the success we've had. I'm sure they are looking at how they can continue to raise the bar.

I don't know what the future brings for 3ds Max as I've been out of the loop for awhile. I wish to believe that Autodesk will reward your passion and enthusiasm with a product that matches or beats your expectations. I know I tried to.

I'll be sitting on the sidelines (or on a beach) watching the future unfold. I really wish you all the best of luck. I'll miss the conversations.

Wow Ken! You really are a gentleman aren't you? I thank you for all the attention you gave to us throughout these years. Be sure that all the critics you received were not targeted at you but at the company and its decisions about 3dsMax. I really appreciate the way you tried to reach the users even if you had no obligation to do it. You are, and will always be, very welcome here.

Wish nothing less than great things to come your way.

Hi Ken!

It was really great having you around here, was nice to have a human face to put on the Max development team, even if it sometimes might have made you a target although a lot of people may not have liked directions and things happening with Max's development, I think everyone really appreciated the effort you made. I don't think Autodesk should underestimate the goodwill that your work here has brought them.

All the best for your future endeavours!

Go on Ken, spill the beans, let everyone know Max is being developed by just 5 monkeys with type-writers

Good Luck, and thanks for saying goodbye.

Thanks Ken, it's been great that you've been around to listen to users and give us info on 3ds Max development. Hope you have a good time sailing, you deserve it.
