The Last Days of Autodesk


I have heard so much about the legendary letter “The Last Days” by John Walker, founder of Autodesk that I decided to check it out today.

Bill Gate once described the article as “brilliantly written and incredible insightful” which inspired him to write his own “Crisis Letter” for Microsoft: “By talking about how a large company slows down, fails to invest enough and loses sight of what is important, and by using Microsoft as an example of how to do some things correctly he manages to touch on a lot of what’s right and wrong with Microsoft today”.
