new comment on your post "The first rule of doing work that matters":

Well, at least I got one response.  I guess everyone else is on vacation.  Gamal, thank you for your comments.  I'm not sure if it's good to know that halfway around the world, they've not heard of BIM either.  Perhaps Autodesk will send you a leftover "I love AutoCAD" pin from Autodesk University.  Apparently, no one is doing enough marketing to get the word out about BIM.  I guess I'll just have to keep pressing on until you let me know that BIM has been adopted in Malaysia. 

Until that day, we'll all be living in "Malaise"ia or maybe BIMalaiseia.

Hi there, reading from Malaysia here, that's halfway around the globe from your place. Been reading your blog for the past few months. Am really amazed on how much passion and work that you have poured into making BIM a standard in the industry. Am also beginning to like this concept of BIM. Don't worry. You'll get to 1000 blogposts someday.

Over here in Malaysia, most people that I know of from the industry don't seem to have the slightest idea what BIM is all about. And I could foresee too that the introduction of BIM to our AEC community will also be met with skepticism.

Contractors are just way too happy doing coordination in 2d and designers are still very pleased with the amount of RFIs they're getting everyday. To learn this new approach is like learning a whole new way to construct a building and that's something a lot of people trying to avoid.

But someday, I believe, in my country, when the rest of the world uses it, then they we will have to catch up. It is already evident when our local companies having a hard time securing jobs in the middle-east as compared to the westerners. This is despite our strong political relationship with the Muslim worlds over there.
