Keeping traditional CAD relevant in a CAD cloud world

Here’s an interesting topic I wanted to get all of your opinions on. There’s a enormous effort today being put behind “CAD in the cloud”. Autodesk is heavily investing in development and marketing of Fusion 360 and newcomer, OnShape is rapidly gaining momentum. With their low cost and ease of use, CAD in the cloud is gaining users at a rapid pace. The makers movement only accelerates the pace of adoption further.

Always room to innovate the old

Random Idea: Dropbox replace your postal mail

Just a random weekend idea. I get a bunch of postal mail every week. Health insurance statements, utility bills, etc, etc. There already is services to change to paperless billing but what about everything else? Why can’t we just have a web service where we enter our home address into and if a company needs to mail us something they see if there is a match already and a PDF version is sent to use. No sign-up required per company.
