Ian and Aaron talk about the Cloud

Interesting Twitter exchange between Ian Keough (father of Dynamo) and Aaron Maller (Malleristic Revitation):

Ian:
I'm beginning to think that any BIM data stored locally is a dumb idea. Anything you want to share should just live in the cloud.

Aaron:
@ikeough Its a cute vision, except for all of the people who need data without cloud access. Many jobsites dont have access.

Ian:
@Twiceroadsfool You have a cell phone? That's cloud access.

Aaron:
@ikeough Are we talking about every person on a jobsite using their personal cell phones? Or assuming every job can afford a 3g ipad?

Aaron:
@ikeough Im a fan of the cloud, dont get me wrong. But im responsible for real jobs that wont have access.

Ian:
@Twiceroadsfool Actually I was talking about sitting at your machine working on a Revit or a Navisworks models.

Aaron:
@ikeough I dont see a good enough ROI in the models in the cloud, unless the site can access. Too much hassle, not enough reward. JM2C. :)
