The really cool part is most of the tech they use in that clasroom already exists today.  The tablets are obvious, and the hybrid tablet is already something that exists, and then the screen is basically a massive surface screen which even news people use today.  I really do hope, for our kids sake, this is the future of classroom tech, would be totally awesome!

The iPad version is much better than the website to view everything.

Yea, I guess that us what I mean.. Interesting that yahoo was so PM focused.. Definitely has some cool products (Flickr, messenger, business), just feel like they don't have the swagger necessary. Love they brought a product person in to fix it

Introduction
I am a Sr. Product Line Manager at Autodesk. I am currently responsible Simulation family of products - both traditional desktop products as well as cloud based.

Prior to this, I worked at Blue Ridge Numerics and was in charge of Product Management and Marketing for CFdesign. Autodesk acquired Blue Ridge in March, 2011.

When not obsessed with CFD, I do actually have other hobbies.

I'm a big music fan, enjoy all kinds and particularly like going to live shows. I'm almost as obsessed with the band PHISH as I am CFD.

Also an avid soccer fan and have season passes to the Philadelphia Union.
