Today's update in this blog:
http://www.blog.cadnauseam.com/2012/11/20/who-is-telling-the-truth-in-autodesks-cloud-pr-trainwreck/
is called "Who is telling the truth in Autodesk’s Cloud PR trainwreck?"
(It's one of the blogs linked in Novedge)

The interesting thing is that there seem to be people in AD asserting that all their applications are going exclusively tot he cloud with as much strength and conviction as others are denying it.

The blog has the following count:

Autodesk people who say yes:

Carl Bass, CEO
Phil Bernstein, Vice President, Building Industry Strategy and Relations
Scott Sheppard, Autodesk Labs Software Development Manager (with private Cloud caveat)

Autodesk people who say no:

Kenneth Pimentel, Director, Visual Communications Solutions
Andrew Anagnost, Senior Vice President of Industry Strategy and Marketing
Clay Helm, Public Relations Manager for Manufacturing, Cross-Platform, Sustainability, and Consumers
Various other underlings who make reassuring but non-specific noises about expanded choice, or who admit to inconvenient impracticalities

I actually like the 90 day licenses. You only end up paying only 300 more then subscription if you did it for the year. Which would take over ten years to reach the initial investment. Have wondered why this hasn't made a bigger splash.
