046: ‘The Moment’, with Ian Janicki
A conversation with Ian Janicki.
Special guest Ian Janicki of Outfit joins the podcast to talk about The Moment.
The Moment serves as a backdrop to kick off a conversation about what we're seeing happening in AEC Tech. The moniker is in reference to the unforeseen convergence of several tech companies in the mid-1990s that brought so-called extreme sports into the mainstream. We then use this as a framework to examine which startups currently working (possibly/hopefully in concert with one another) toward The Moment for AEC.
Steve Jobs said in his 2005 Stanford Commencement Address: “You can't connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backward. So you have to trust that the dots will somehow connect in your future.”
In this episode, we explore the topics of platforms and apps, puzzles and puzzle pieces, infrastructure and API's, what's changing and what's not changing in the next 10 years, the choice to work on hard projects versus latching on to shiny objects, moving bits versus marshaling atoms, and more.
