A new point of view

New feature, I am getting my head around it and cannot really control it. You have been warned...
Blogger has recently launched a new feature for their blogs, that in "modern" browsers enables an exciting way to go through the posts and comments: dynamic views

MOSAIC:

FLIPCARD:

TIMESLIDE:

SIDEBAR:

SNAPSHOT:

More interesting, it's quite easy to jump from one to the other so it's quite easy to find what you want. The information is always the same, but if you remember WHEN it was posted, you go to timeslide, if you remember an image, you go to snapshot, if you want to see how different topics are related you use flipcard and for a general overview - or most popular posts you grab mosaic. Simple magic.

But the good news continue: this feature is available to most blogs hosted by Blogger (some of my favourites failed though), all you need to do is to add "/view" at the end of the address! This means you can use it, for instance, in these cool blogs:

My reading list
Mathematic explorations

Back on the saddle after a long silence, this time bringing a list of books that have kept me busy... is this a good excuse for not writing blog entries???

With a deadline for this afternoon I cannot spend a lot of time describing each book... yet I want to push myself to communicate some of the mind-opening good reads I came across recently. Most are not new books, and probably you will recognise them.

Without further introduction, here's a list of books about maths, with a twist:

Godel, Escher, Bach: and eternal golden braid by D. Hofstadter

The_Emperor's New Mind by Roger Penrose

In Pursuit of the Unknown: 17 Equations That Changed the World by Ian Stewart

Introducing Chaos, a graphic guide

Art and Physics by Leonard Shlain

Things to Make and Do in the Fourth Dimension by Matt Parker

So, these are some of my current and past reads. Have you read them? Any recommendations down these lines?


In future entries I will explore books about design and programming, creative code, artific…

The ROI of BIM:
Why is it so difficult?

Decision makers often requests a calculation of the Return for their Investment. When it comes to BIM, the calculation of a single number (the strict definition of "ROI") is difficult and arguably limited in practical value. Decision makers are more interested in a wider understanding of what they (and their company) are getting back.

In this note I present my thoughts on the ROI measurement limitations and how to address investment decisions for BIM.
Introduction Return on Investment or ROI is a common evaluation metric to decide on investment projects. In certain contexts it is a back-of-envelope assessment of performance of an opportunity. It simply states the ratio between the expected returns and the required investment, and is often presented as a percentage value. (ROI = Return/Investment). The Return is the net impact of the implementation, meaning the difference between the value before and after the project is executed, or the gross return minus the investment.
