A look at BidConTender

Two weeks ago (post), I noted the soft launch of an Aconex service branded BidContender, where the Australian SaaS construction collaboration technology provider is aiming to create an e-tendering portal that will allow contractors to distribute tender documentation and subcontractors to have easy access to that data.

Daden showcases collaborative use of Second Life

On 25 February, Martin Brown and I talked to the Black Country Constructing Excellence Club about use of social media in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry. We both mentioned the virtual world of Second Life and, being in the West Midlands, it seemed natural to highlight the expertise of Birmingham-based Daden (whose efforts …

Asite Autumn 09 release

UK construction collaboration vendor Asite has issued its Autumn 09 Release, says a website notice dated 6 November 2009.

Relevance – not sheep!

Ever since I first got interested in what we now understand loosely as Web 2.0, I have been looking for ways to make it relevant to my day-to-day job. For example, I started blogging three years ago to create an online presence to expand on the content of my book (flyer); at BIW, I have …

TfL mashup idea

While looking for ideas for topics at Be2camp, I came across another cool suggestion on Show Us a Better Way, the UK Cabinet Office’s Web 2.0 competition site for ideas to unlock the potential of publicly-held information (see posts here and here).

A bit of a Web 2.0 day

I spent a fair chunk of yesterday looking at and talking about various Web 2.0 applications, mash-ups and events. It was all started by reading an article on the BBC website, Government launches data mash-up. This led me to look at FixMyStreet.com, an officially-sanctioned project from MySociety.org that allows UK residents to report vandalism, abandoned …
