Evan talks to Anthony about a range of topics, including the story of Architosh’s creation and founding. After that, they head straight at two of the AEC tech industry’s hottest topics: Apple’s decision to abandon Intel chips and design its own Apple Silicon (SoC) system on chip processors for future Macs, and one of the biggest storms in the tech industry in 2020, the Autodesk Revit Open letter movement led by a group of British architects including noted marquee firms Zaha Hadid Architects, Grimshaw and others.
The podcast touches on several noteworthy items, including not-yet-published information about how the CEO of the fastest-growing CAD company in the world believes Apple will have the fastest computers in the world within the next five years—because of Apple Silicon!
Anthony provides additional color around the conversation about the Autodesk Revit Open letter as he and Evan discuss the complexities surrounding Revit’s dominance. To listen to the episode go here now.
