Autodesk University Voting for the classes you want in December 2008

Well, I'm still not sure how this happened, but I submitted applications to teach two classes at Autodesk University 2008. I suppose it's all Matt's fault. Matt Rumbelow works for an Autodesk reseller in Australia.
He suggested we teach a class together on outsourcing Revit family content. Since I'm the Broutek dealer for the United States and Matt handles Australia, New Zealand and China, we decided to go from AU and USA to AU in NV. As much as I love the classes we teach on creating Revit custom content, you can't do it all on your own. We'll discuss the pros and cons of keeping it in the family vs outsourcing and using other content sources such as revitcity.com.

Are you Content with your Family? Issues and Advantages by Outsourcing Revit Content Creation – AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite – Level: All Levels – Speaker: Matt Rumbelow (& Gregory Arkin)
My other class is titled
To Blog or Not to Blog - Sharing your Revit knowledge with the world. – AutoCAD Revit Architecture Suite – Level: All Levels – Speaker: Gregory Arkin (& Matt Rumbelow)"To Blog or Not to Blog - Sharing your Revit knowledge with the world.

If you're here reading this, you must believe in blogs and all things Revit. I've invited a couple of other bloggers, including Steve Stafford of RevitOpEd fame and a few mystery guests. Yes, it's off the beaten path of your typical AU class, but we're all in this together and the online resources available to you are priceless and using them to your advantage is key to Revit success.

I'd really appreciate it if you take 5 minutes and vote for my two classes. It'd mean a lot to me to be able to present at AU. As your going through the voting, the first class is under Revit Architecture and the blogging course is under Business. You can vote for up to 15 classes in each category. Even if you're not planning on attending Autodesk University, I'd still like you to vote. Then I can even talk about this post in the class and show the world how powerful blogging really is.

So, are you ready? Great, here's the link to vote
