I’ve decided to implement a new weekly post on the blog called “Blog of the Week.” I’m a pretty avid consumer of blogs. My morning routine usually involves popping open Google Reader with a cup of coffee and catching up on the latest industry trends, product updates, opinions, and more. I’ve decided to start sharing my favorites so you can benefits from their insights. And please feel free to share your favorite blogs with me. (If you aren’t using Google Reader or some sort of RSS aggregator to follow blogs, I highly recommend it. It makes keeping up with blogs as easy as checking your e-mail.)
My inaugural Blog of the Week is Lachmi Khemlani’s AECbytes. Many of you have probably been subscribing to Lachmi’s monthly e-mail newsletter for years, I know I have. Lachmi’s blog is a perfect mix of product reviews, guest viewpoints, conference and tradeshow summaries, and profiles of firms and individual AEC technology leaders. Her content is refreshingly clear and always relevant.
In short, there is a reason why I chose to put AECbytes as my inaugural post – if there was only one AEC industry blog that I subscribed to – AECbytes would be it. Go subscribe today.
Lachmi has a Ph.D. in Architecture from UC Berkeley, specializing in intelligent building modeling. Her other credentials include a professional B.Arch. (Honors) degree from the Indian Institute of Technology, Kharagpur, India, and an M.Phil. in Architecture from the University of Cambridge, England. She has worked on numerous design projects as a practicing architect and taught CAD and 3D modeling for several years at UC Berkeley. She gives frequent presentations before both professional and academic audiences, serves on juries for technology awards, and continues to stay closely involved with the research community, serving on the editorial board of the journal, Automation in Construction.
