Introducing AECCafe Voice!
January 3rd, 2013 by Susan Smith
Welcome to our new blog, AECCafe Voice!
With 2013, we replace our AECWeekly newsletter with a regular blog on topics of interest to Architecture, Engineering and Construction (AEC) technology professionals. The blog format allows for information to be delivered to you in a more timely fashion, with the addition of videos and other multimedia. In fact, according to a recent report, all complex communication begins with a face to face contact, which is what video can provide. And with that in mind, the cloud delivers video, so we remain in the flow with our ability to deliver news, links, photos and video on timely topics all at the same time.
Take this recent article in The New York Times Snow Fall: Tunnel Creek which explored the opportunity to use different types of media – a feature story plus video interview clips plus photos.
With a fast moving industry like AEC, our news moves at a blistering pace. It may not have the same excitement as the extreme skiing life/death drama of Tunnel Creek, but nevertheless the editorial treatment shows just what is possible for media these days.
2013 promises to be an exciting year, with many technologies such as the cloud that has been around for awhile, but new implementations of that technology and new ways of ensuring its security. New ways of delivering and sharing AEC information and commentary are on the horizon.
In January, we will be publishing predictions of our own as well as those from different AEC organizations.
So stay tuned for what AECCafe Voice has to offer, feel free to write in and suggest timely topics. Above all: Happy New Year!
