I’ve been following Paul Wilkinson’s blog on construction collaboration technologies, extranets, and social media, Extranet Evolution, for almost a year. A couple interesting things to note about Paul and his blog:
- He’s based in the UK. I think it is always interesting to keep up with AEC technology developments from the UK since the best ones usually find their way to the US. (Think OpenAsset.)
- He’s positioned his consulting practice and his content at the intersection between Web 2.0 and the AEC industry in something he’s calling “AEC 2.0.”
- He has been posting steady, thoughtful updates and critiques on the leading software tools and emerging trends since at least September 2005. (That’s how far back his archives go.)
I recommend adding Extranet Evolution (www.extranetevolution.com) to your blog/RSS reader of choice today. It is great source of knowledge that many of us aren’t aware of in the US.
