Reviewing BuildingSMART 2008

I have now had a couple of days to reflect on Wednesday’s BuildingSMART conference in London (see my live-blog posts here and here). My thoughts…. UK lagging behind – Given that it’s an organisation’s annual event, you would expect a lot of the same people to turn up each year, and there were a lot …

How web 2.0 friendly is AEC ICT?

I have thinking a lot about Web 2.0 stuff today. Over and above my day job and my usual background Tweets, RSS and blog-watching, I have been trying to help move the proposed BE2camp event along (we now have a potential central London venue for the October event, with interest from contributors in the US …

BuildLondonLive embracing Web 2.0

I have just registered to attend this year’s BuildingSMART conference, taking place this Wednesday, 25 June, at the RIBA in London (see previous post), and have also registered as an observer for this week’s parallel BuildLondonLive event (see BuildLondonLive – update). BuildLondonLive is embracing some Web 2.0 tools; it looks like Asite‘s Nathan Doughty – …

Web 2.0 meets Built Environment – possible event

Some Web 2.0 enthusiasts, including myself, have started talking, Tweeting, wikifying and now blogging about a possible UK event where built environment people interested in Web 2.0 (and, equally, Web 2.0 people interested in the built environment) might get together and share ideas about synergies between the two worlds. Provisionally named BE2camp, the event would …

Construction and Web 2.0

I attended a meeting of one of Constructing Excellence‘s Collaborative Working Champions groups yesterday, and one of our debates concerned discussing and communicating the benefits of collaborative working. Some of the group were surprised that related issues (for example: Egan’s recent speech) and themes (technology, people and processes) were already being discussed on social media …

Testing Flock blog tool

For some months, I have been a happy user of Microsoft’s Live Writer as an offline blogging tool and have been using the Flock browser. Now – and partly because fellow blogger Phil Clark at ZeroChampion has become a Flock user – I have started investigating how well Flock’s built-in editing tool works with my …

Projectcentre.net

Earlier this year, I started looking in a little more detail at the Australian construction collaboration technology market. Aconex, being active in the UK, obviously feature regularly in my thoughts (I believe their shareholder dispute may finally yield a judgement in the next month or so); I have written about Incite (here and here); and I linked to …

Twitter on

The inside back page of this week’s Building magazine has ZeroChampion Phil Clark writing about Twitter. He’s spurred me into action, so – joining some of the other regular Building bloggers – I’ve now started ‘tweeting’ too (and have downloaded TwitToday to allow me to ‘tweet’ from my Windows Mobile smartphone while I’m out and about). (Twitter was …
