A meeting was held in Sausalito in December 1991 to discuss the Autodesk Global Village idea. A decision was made to proceed. On May 19, 1992, almost precisely six months after the go-ahead, the first customer logged on to the Autodesk Global Village BBS in California. By November 1992 more than 600 customers had dialed into Autodesk's central Global Village node, and the first AGV CD-ROM had been pressed and distributed to BBS operators around the globe. No software development was required to accomplish this.
