The BIM Brothers — Added Value
BEST. BIM. VIDEO.
OF ALL TIME!
Listen closely to the lyrics. The guys who made this video (more on them in a moment) clearly know ArchiCAD and just crammed this video full of ArchiCAD advice, Graphisoft history, and BIM tips. It’s just insane. But wait, it gets better. If you are an ArchiCAD user in North America and you’ve been to user groups or conferences or other events where Graphisoft shows up, you might recognize the BIM Brothers: Zoltan and Charlie. Seriously, the two guys in this video are the New York City based tech support and sales team for Graphisoft North America. How nuts is that? Bonus fun facts: that’s definitely them singing plus Zoltan is also a great guitarist, so I’m positive you’re actually hearing him play the guitar as well. What?! Yeah, this video just left me speechless the first time I saw it. Clearly this is Graphisoft’s end of the year gift to all of us.
(02/03/15 update: sadly this video was a short term gift and has gone back to the land of amazingness and wonderfulness whence it came. Maybe someday it’ll return to us. I hope so. It was full of so much joy and love for ArchiCAD).
Anyways…if you haven’t already, sign up for the Graphisoft BIM Conference happening in Las Vegas on March 11-13, 2015. Charlie and Zoltan will be there for sure. Maybe we’ll get them to do a live performance.
Oh and of course, I’ll be at the 2015 Graphisoft BIM Conference. In fact right now I’m putting the finishing touches on the descriptions of the two sessions I’ll be running: a user panel jammed full of power users talking about how they are pushing the limits of ArchiCAD for residential design and a lecture on Beauty and BIM. I’ll tell you more about both in January.
Finally: I think this is the last new post for me for 2014. I say this every year, but it’s always true: this year has been great for Shoegnome and it’s been such a pleasure to help uplift the ArchiCAD, BIM, and Architecture communities. Thank you all for your encouragement, support, and general wonderfulness. I’ll hopefully be resharing some of my favorite posts from the year between now and December 31st. And then come January, lots of news, lots of excitement, a bit of reflecting on 2014 (maybe), and oh so much more. If half of what I have planned for 2015 happens and a quarter of what I know others are planning for 2015 happens, then the coming year is going to be the best year ever for Shoegnome, ArchiCAD, and BIM. That is until 2016 crushes 2015…I’m forever an optimist.
Make sure to follow Shoegnome on Facebook and Twitter. If you’re not a social media person, RSS feed is also a great way to never miss anything either. There’s so much happening in the next 12 months, that you’re going to want to hear about. But I can’t tell you today…because spoilers.
