A few more thoughts on #AIA #BIM and #CAD and WTF

Someone had sent a blog comment this morning regarding yesterday's post about The American Institute of Architects - How BIM Can Help Japanese Disaster Recovery Efforts, Practicing Architecture

His comment was very simple:
OMG
AFT

Matt, I'm not sure what AFT refers to. After looking at http://www.acronymattic.com/AFT.html, I have come up with the following choices:

Accelerated Failure Time  - CAD
Automated File Transfer
Analytic Forensic Technology
A Forgotten Tragedy (alternative band) - CAD
About Freaking Time (polite form) - BIM
Agglutination-Flocculation Test
Applied Flow Technology
Advanced Fabrication Technology  - Fabrication of lies about being 100% complete with CDs.
Advanced Forming Technology - BIM?
ambiguous figures task
Assembly of Free Thinkers - BIM users
Advanced Facilitator Training - BIM
Accelerated Feasibility Testing - BIM
Advocates for Transformation - BIM users
All Fellow Travelers - the BIM folk
Administrative Focus Team - IPD & BIM

I'm curious if AFT refers to one of the above.

In the meantime, a few more 3 letter acronyms for you.
CAD = RFI
BIM = ROI

I don't know how I come up with this stuff on a daily basis, but I hope it helps you in your BIM endeavors.
