(People clicking to go to a specific article - not just scrolling down the blog)
  1. 3,320 - Seven slides to include in every BIM presentation
    For all the effort on serious posts, the one p8ss take post I do gets more than double the hits of any other. Typical :)
  2. 1,410 - NBS for Autodesk Revit plug-in now live
    Users of both NBS and Revit get a plug-in connecting the two products.

    This was the preview of the above release discussing how the Keynote process would be improved with the plug-in.
  4. 970 - BIM for free - The Inside BIM event
    I did quite a few conference write-ups - ICE, RICS, BSI, BIM Show Live - unexpectedly though, this free event towards the end of the year received the most blog hits.
  5. 870 - BIM Summit Qatar - Day three
    Phil Bernstein turns up and announces that UK is second behind Finland for BIM adoption in EMEA and the blog post reporting this gets well read.
