Another provider blog

A comment from US construction collaboration technology provider e-Builder‘s CEO Jon Antevy on my recent post, Getting Won Over, includes a link to his own blog – with the snappy (not) title “Construction Project Management and Collaboration” – begun late last year. By my reckoning that makes five blogs from construction collaboration technology vendors (in date order): …

New kids on the blog

I see that Aconex joint MDs Rob Phillpot and Leigh Jasper have just started a blog, Built on Collaboration, in which they will “discuss some good industry practices and, along the way, share some … stories about running a business”. I look forward to reading future posts. Welcome to the blogosphere, lads!

Extranet Evolution: two years old

The Extranet Evolution blog is now just over two years old. Just over a year ago, I noted that June 2006 had been my first year’s peak month with 2,069 page-loads by 1,049 unique visitors (totals marginally exceeded in September 2006: 2,122 and 1,282 respectively). Over the past year, traffic has risen further – every month …

CJ blog renaissance

According to a comment on my 9 February post, First Blogs, then splogs, now flogs (and CJ), no fewer than six blogs are to be launched this week at UK trade journal Contract Journal. (If you want lots of video of construction equipment in action and other construction-related stuff, the blog of commenter, James Stafford, has loads of …

CAD collaboration

Earlier this month, I mentioned New Zealand-based David Harrisons’ Stress-Free blog. In a more recent, long post entitled CAD Collaboration, he discusses the challenge of collaborating around CAD models. He gives a good outline of how teams have used technology to share CAD information to date, including the use of what he calls “external document management”. …

First Blogs, then splogs, now flogs (and CJ)

This week’s issue of UK public relations trade magazine, PR Week, has a ‘blog special’ feature, and a front-page headline, Fake bloggers to be exposed. This says: “PR professionals who pose as customers to blog for clients could soon find themselves named and shamed by Trading Standards, and even face civil court proceedings.” (From a …

New Autodesk collaboration blog

The growing Autodesk blogosphere now has a blog, Connected, dedicated to collaboration. Contributors (collaborators?) Jason, Alex and Mike will be delivering “perspectives on online project management and collaboration”, no doubt informed by their knowledge of Autodesk’s Buzzsaw and Constructware systems. However, they already seem quite prepared to look beyond company boundaries; witness posts about Gliffy (A …

The email argument revisited

I keep returning to this topic (see previous post, for example). This time, my post has been prompted by three things: a Union Square press release, a conversation with Sarcophagus’s Jeremy Sainter, and a blog posting by Lars Plougmann linking to the thoughts of a Harvard professor. Taking these in reverse order, Lars writes about …

EatYourCad Babbage Award goes to … Avanti

On the excellent EatYourCad blog (see December 2005 post) Nigel Davies has had an irreverant look back at  2006 and made some awards for ‘“things that should not be”, things that have drawn a wry smile or things that have been plain crazy’. And ‘The Cart Driving The Donkey Award’ goes to … Avanti. Nigel writes: …

Tagging for Live Writer

Many thanks to Jimmy Bergmark for alerting me to a plug-in that overcomes the tagging gap in Microsoft Live Writer (see comments on  yesterday’s post). It makes Live Writer even more attractive.
