Saw this "The B1M (the BIM one million) is now live at www.TheB1M.com. Please share your BIM learning and experiences to inspire wider uptake around the world. "on Linked-In and had to have a look.
The web site is missing a picture on the front page, then you read on and find its £2 a poke and limited at just 1 Million people (at the moment) so that's 2 Million Pounds, nice idea for making money and that's about all ;0)
My initial reaction was, If you are going to waste £2 give it to a charity, those already into BIM know who all the usual faces are already.....and those joining will find out soon enough.
Then Fred Mills • replied
Hi Alan, thanks for the comments. Please see the news article below. It would be very short sighted of us to make £2m and go off on a jolly. This is about making a long term impact on our industry and promoting BIM around the world. You're welcome to join in.http://construction-manager.co.uk/news/new-bim-website-aims-million-users/
After reading the information on the press release it kinda gives it a little more credibility and this information should really be on The B1M front page, but there are so many of these BIM clubs forming, I will give £2 to charity instead.
Due to past lack of virtual performance from Autodesk University – this year, I didn’t look at the outlines for the classes , I didn’t make a list of those that I wanted to stay up late and watch (semi- live as a lot were pre recorded anyway) – In fact I have not bothered with AU at all !
First visit to AU web site was this morning to pick up the really valuable information that “All AU Classes will be available in about two weeks” So in a couple of weeks I will harvest the good stuff and consume at my leisure……
How many of you out there are doing the same this year I wonder?
