What kind of Collaborator are you?

CADSoft Consulting brought some great representatives from Autodesk together to talk about Emerging Technology for Building Professionals, and I was invited.  :)

Tim Douglas reminded us of the importance of DATA in our models.
Scott Davis talked about the power of visualization (and NOT just the photo-realistic type.)
Ken STowe talked about the ROI of BIM and a Workshop series he has facilitated on the subject. If you ever have an opportunity to participate in that workshop  I highly recommend it (even from the short description we had today.)
And Chuck Mies talked about how Owners can use BIM and what we all have to do to make it happen.

Thanks to all of you.

In relation to the Post title, Chuck Mies brought up a great point about the buzzword Collaboration, their are two definitions:
intr.v. col·lab·o·rat·ed, col·lab·o·rat·ing, col·lab·o·rates
1. To work together, especially in a joint intellectual effort.
 2. To cooperate treasonably, as with an enemy occupation force in one's country.

How are you collaborating on your current projects?
