Dave Pluke - a driving force in A/E/C CAD, BIM and IT
Dave's first personal computer was a Timex Sinclair (that held a whopping 1000 Bytes of RAM!). To quote the poet; "...what a long, strange trip it's been!".
Dave's Motto: "Never forget the lessons of the past - Never assume you've seen it all."

Where was that header photo taken?
Thought you'd never ask! There's a story behind it:
In 2005, hurricane Emily scored a direct hit on our property in Akumal, Quintana Roo, Mexico. Things were a mess down there for awhile. The day we flew down to inspect the damage and repair effort was the same day hurricane Katrina made landfall in New Orleans. The pilot explained we needed to divert from our normally straight flight path (between Minneapolis and Cancun) to avoid the storm. None of us knew at the time, what destruction Katrina would bring. But, I digress. The picture was taken from inside our living room looking out onto Akumal's Half Moon Bay. With the floor-to-ceiling mullions and tinted glass removed (thanks to Emily), we were blessed with an incredible panoramic view.
Later that year, hurricane Wilma removed the glass we'd installed post-Emily.
We've tried to keep that - and subsequent would-be setbacks in perspective. With no disrespect to those who have been impacted far more than we; "Sometimes, it takes a hurricane to see the big picture."
