More Knowledge and Information Economy with BIM?
Jared Banks, who runs the Shoegnome Blog, has an interesting blog post up that imagines the future of BIM. He's really talking about the mechanisms whereby designers leverage knowledge garnered while creating an integrated BIM to sell additional services downstream. He nails the basics and does a good job of painting one vision of the future exchanges we might see in a Knowledge and Information economy.
Below is an excerpt from the post and link to the blog.

The passive income potential goes up.
