OpeningDesign.com

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.

tCn – The Construction Network – launches

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. As a marketeer, I recently looked again at this creative industries technology area …

A new blog, a new direction

Sharp-eyed visitors to this blog may have noticed a new RSS feed in the side-bar – from pwcom. This is my new blog focused on PR, marketing and Web 2.0, with a strong bias towards how these are used in the architecture, engineering, construction and property sectors. I have discussed Web 2.0 a lot in …

Let’s make construction more ‘social’

[This is a re-post of a blog article I wrote for Building Sustainable Design, which launched this week.] I have spent more than half my career in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) and property industry looking at issues relating to collaboration, and since 2000 have been focused on how to use internet-based technologies to …

Building online communities

My friend (and fellow Be2camp member) Jim McHale of Memoori has just blogged some Oreillynet.com guidance from 2002 about building online communities: Exist for a reason – a community has to promote a collective goal. Users draw other users – Your most active users will draw more users than you ever will. Referrals might bring …

Just Practising

Initially through Be2camp, but then Twitter, LinkedIn and the recently-launched AEC Network on Ning, I have become friends with Su Butcher, practice manager of East Anglia architect Barefoot and Gilles, who has just started a new blog, Just Practising (my very modest claim to fame is that the blog title is one of several I …
