justpractising – new blog on the block

Great to see new blogs being created that address issues relating to the built environment and web 2.0 ‘stuff’

Fellow twitter Su Butcher has joined the blogosphere with justpractising:

So here it is. A blog about architects.

There are three things I want to do with this blog, things I have been doing elsewhere on the internet for some years but in a pretty unco-ordinated way it must be said.

Firstly, I want to help explain what it is that architects can do, what they are good at (and not so good at), how you can use them to get where you want to be with your property, and of course, what they should be doing differently.

Secondly, I’m a bit of a networking nut and very keen on using the internet for networking, so I’m taking the opportunity to investigate how the construction industry is and is not using the internet, so there will be plenty of opinionated posts about that too.

Lastly, I’d like to ask the people who read this for your suggestions on what I should blog about. If you know me already you might have some ideas, and if you don’t, take a look at what I’ve got to say and let me know what’s missing. In good networking parlance, if I don’t know myself, I can find out who does.

 

new CSR blog

Welcome to a new blog from Fabian Pattberg:  CorporateResponsibility.Net

Its purpose  is to provide the reader with a selection of news items that are informative and useful without the corporate spin of a normal press release. I have signed up to a lot of news services and website newsletters and will select the news items I feel are useful and provide an added value for the Corporate Responsibility interested reader.

and there is an RSS feed too!

Capable People – a new blog on the block

I have added another blog to the blogroll – down there on the right somewhere – capablepeople is a new blog on the block and while it isnt a ‘built environment’ or ‘sustainability’ blog, is an entertaining and readable blog on general business improvement themes.

The first batch of posts covers a wide range from EFQM and ISO 9000 to  Leadership via Joy Division and Formula 1.

One to add to your RSS or igoogle.
