Senubo to launch early 2011

Not strictly a collaboration solution, more an expertise-oriented social network, start-up Senubo is set to launch in early 2011. Yesterday I attended a half-day workshop organised by the Construction Productivity Network focused on how to get the UK construction industry to deliver “more for less” – a topical ambition given that tomorrow the government is …

Does “industry leadership” matter?

I was reading comments on LinkedIn about a Pauley Creative blog post by Pritesh Patel (5 reasons why construction companies should be blogging); in the comments, Pritesh argues too many firms make unsubstantiated claims about being market leading, etc, without proving their leadership. A quick look at the websites of several of the longest-established UK-based …

Partly through my involvement with Be2camp and partly because of my interests in online collaborative spaces, I was contacted by US-based architect Ryan Shultz of Studio Wikitecture to have a look at a very early, ‘alpha stage’ website concept, OpeningDesign.com. As Ryan candidly admits, this application is still experimental, and is currently a combination of …

Brialto

I received an email earlier this week inviting me to join Brialto, an online business networking platform as a pioneer member.

Asite keeps its community updated

As a web 2.0 enthusiast, it’s good to see UK construction technology vendor Asite using its community forum to talk to users about its plans, and Tweeting about them (see post). Through Twitter, I saw a link to an update posted by Nathan Doughty, Asite’s CTO, in which he updates Asite users about forthcoming developments …

Asite Autumn 09 release

UK construction collaboration vendor Asite has issued its Autumn 09 Release, says a website notice dated 6 November 2009. Three hightlights I picked out: New maps “mash-ups” – using either a Google Maps portlet or a Microsoft Virtual Earth / Bing Maps portlet.

More design review applications

A couple of years ago (2 March 2007, to be more precise), I noted the emergence of some marketing-related online applications, ConceptShare and ReviewBasics, that allow, for example, graphic designers to share brochure and advertising designs with their clients and other collaborators.
