First tomato of the season BIM beginnings part 1

Yesterday I saw my first small tomato in the garden, and my 4 year old said ” it was huge” this makes me think of the some of the projects and businesses I have been involved in the last say, 15 years or so that I have tried to streamline the design or construction processes. It started in 1999 where I first learned AutoCAD and Architectural Desktop where you built a 3d models in model space and you could extract information from the model such as construction and window schedules, equipment schedules and so on, basically anything that you could “tag”.
