Anyone spare $750,000 …. for an investment in the obsolescence of prints-on-paper? This post is about “”.

One of my frequent blog-visitors brought this company – Mosaic - to my attention, yesterday, and, after reading up on what this company is doing, I thought I’d take a few minutes to write about it.

“Mosaic” aims to overhaul construction document handling”, is the title of an article that appeared in the Silicon Valley – San Jose Business Journal, back on April 1, 2011. The SV-SJ Business Journal have been running a series of articles, back around that time, profiling start up technology ventures, ventures looking for funding. In the article about Mosaic, it says, “money being sought: $750,000.” Uh huh.

The co-founder and CEO of the company, Anthony Jones, has an extensive background in A/E/C project document management; former positions held include stints with some “big names”, The Army Corps of Engineers, Turner Construction, Hensel-Phelps Construction, Gilbane Building USA, and Skanska Building USA.

Looks like one of Mosaic’s first customers was Whiting-Turner (Whiting-Turner is a very large General Construction / Construction Management firm, based in the Baltimore, MD area.) (Hmmm, I’m, at this very moment, recollecting that W-T is an ARC “premier account.”)

In the article, it states this, “Mosaic also believes that it (it’s technology and services) will impact the reprographics business, saying that it has already seen decreases of up to 50% in the number of drawings printed.”

Okay, that’s enough for now; I’ve placed the article in my Google Docs library, and you can access the article at this link:
