BIM: The new typing pool ?

In the olden days, many organisations had a group of people (nearly always women) in what was known as a ‘typing pool’. The idea was that if you needed a non-handwritten document, then these people would apply specialist skills (typing) on an incredibly complicated bit of kit (a typewriter) to produce said document.
A surprising number of organisations still work in ‘typing pool ‘ mode when it comes to BIM.
