Today's Scripture: "Be of good courage, And He shall strengthen your heart, All you who hope in the Lord." Ps 31:24

5337. You can’t go forward looking backward; at least you shouldn’t. JG


See it.

Change is on the way

Live it.

Working in the construction industry in the seventies meant using slide rules, paper tape adding machines, pencils, T-squares, large plans on paper and 12-inch triangular rulers. Then Dodge McGraw Hill started transferring the plans to microfilm which was a step in the direction employed today. For two weeks, this old-timer has been doing quantitative survey (take-offs) from Adobe PDFs and software that allows calibration with markup. Then using MS Excel, material is summarized and a proposal made that never sees paper. Can you say old dog, new tricks? This transition is not for the faint in heart.

In 1982, before the Internet existed, I formed a company called Datasource with the idea of creating construction information being shared across modems. I stopped for the sake of a smaller goal: supporting my family via a paying job. It's funny how I envisioned the industry getting where it is, but when it arrived, somebody had to teach me how to utilize it.

Pray it.

You, O God, can do the improbable and the impossible and make it seem easy.
