Does Social Media Belong in CAD Applications?

Via the excellent TenLinks newsletter, I found this Cadalyst article by Robert Green on social media in the CAD workplace. Robert admits he is not a big fan of social media in the workplace: I do see some value in it for CAD managers, as long as it is used judiciously. However, I foresee nothing …

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 …

Yammer, Present.ly

Last week I wondered whether the construction industry suffered from ‘collaboraphobia’, affecting its ability to adopt tools and techniques that improve communication and information-sharing. There are a small (but hopefully growing) number of construction people writing blogs, using Twitter, and building online communities, but given the size of the industry, it is clear that we …

Building Web 2.0 awareness

Fellow Be2camp organiser Martin Brown (here) and I (here and here, for example) have both written several recent blog postings about the AEC sector’s adoption of Web 2.0 tools. Martin’s post was also picked up by the US-based Construction Software Review blog (Construction needs to embrace technology, not avoid it, part 6: Web awareness) who …
