Few things trigger me more than seeing one of my works inaccurately invoked in relation to the tech workflow I was intimately involved in. @archpaper highlights the Hangzhou stadium in relation to #Revit being a "popular choice for parametric design." 1/12 archpaper.com/2020/07/autode…
For some #AEC tech news context, a group of architecture firms recently put @autodesk on blast for a lack of #Revit development while the cost of the software continues to rise with new licensing models. Here is coverage by @AECmagazine 2/12 aecmag.com/comment-mainme…
What caught my attention in the @archpaper article was the featuring of the Hangzhou Stadium. The image includes this caption: "Thanks to Grasshopper integration and the program’s BIM capabilities, Revit is a popular choice for parametric design." 3/12

I’ve seen a lot of threads about how hard it is to get a job in VR. I would love to help in any way I can. I’m blocking tomorrow 10am-12 noon to do Zoom calls with people interested to get in the VR industry or advance in the industry. DM me if you want to connect. #VR #VRJobs
I know it is a US holiday tomorrow. I’ll be happy to do this again later on a non-holiday if there is interest.
The 1-on-1 sessions got booked. Feel free to DM questions OR I am happy to #AMA on this thread AND I set up a Group Zoom call for 12:30pmPDT tomorrow to answer Qs on getting a job in #VR. If you work in the field & want to join in and answer Qs, pls do so! hp.zoom.com/j/99991743542?…

Is #ROI a fallacy of AEC tech? For example - Can someone point me to a well-researched study with documented data collection and calculation methods and data excerpts that shows return on investment related to #BIM tech adoption in #AEC as an industry?
The top search result on Google is an @autodesk white paper where #ROI of #BIM is framed through a "customer perception study" - so it's valuable if customers think they're getting value? Not a single dollar figure is cited in this paper. Laughable. damassets.autodesk.net/content/dam/au…
More results are case-study driven and not easily extrapolated to indicate a larger #ROI rule or trend (imo) - note in this 2011 example that they frame it as "potential savings". Also note that #BIM and "pre-BIM" are not fully defined or qualified brikbase.org/content/bim-re…

In 1995, Jeff Bezos’ parents took a $250,000 gamble on his fledgling startup

One IPO and 3 splits later, his parents’ stake could be worth almost $30 billion today. That would make them wealthier than Microsoft Corp. co-founder Paul Allen

bloomberg.com/news/articles/… via @technology
[2] I am NOT saying #Bezos committed insider trading

But I AM saying that grandfather LP #Gise was a director at the AEC (Atomic Energy Commission) and key person to approve and fund ARPA , from which #ARPAnet evolved , and now #Amazon is the largest cloud provider on Earth
[3] Dont believe me? Search this for "Gise" (or LP Gise).
