Stiktu: a social app, perhaps with professional potential

Thanks to a transAtlantic Twitter conversation with fellow construction technology fanatic Carol Hagen, I was alerted yesterday to a new mobile augmented reality application, Stiktu.

Keep taking the tablets

I recently talked to Building magazine’s Stephen Kennett about use of mobile devices such as Apple’s iPad in the construction industry and providing some pointers on who else he might talk to. The resulting article, Keep Taking the Tablets (paywall site: subscription normally required) was published last week (I get a couple of mentions – …

Still keeping an Eye on Woobius

I met up with Bob Leung from Woobius a couple of times last week (including at the launch of StickyWorld‘s Collaboration Cafe at London’s Building Centre – pwcom post), and he updated me on progress with Woobius Eye (see post). Now honoured with its own website, the latest stage of Woobius Eye’s development was the …

Woobius wins £23,000 at PICNIC

I wrote again about Woobius a couple of weeks ago, noting that its real-time mobile collaboration solution, Woobius Eye, had reached the final of the Vodafone Mobile Click 2009 competition. Last Friday, in a Dragons Den-style appearance before judges and a 200-strong audience at the PICNIC social media event in Amsterdam, Woobius finished third, beating …

Keeping an Eye on Woobius

I wrote about the low-cost simple collaboration application Woobius earlier this year (first here, then here), and they’ve remained on my radar ever since, partly because of their participation in one of this year’s Be2camp events (in Liverpool in May*), and partly because they subsequently approached me to undertake a couple of small PR projects …
