On the Importance of “Community”

The other night I had the pleasure of meeting up with some of my local colleagues in Singapore’s BIM community for pizza and drinks.

It wasn’t a “BIM Symposium”, Revit User Group, or Government Event.  Neither academic, nor professional.

Just 7 professionals getting together to joke around, socialize, and kvetch a bit…. ok we kvetched a lot.

2 of us were from construction firms, 2 architects, an engineer, a budding bureaucrat, and one guy from Autodesk. We’ve all known each other for years.

I felt pretty lucky that all of us live in the same city.  RTC may bring together an extended family, and foster  a wide net of community, but I feel that it’s equally important to make the the easy connection to my neighbours.
