My work in Dundee has taken on an economic development angle once again (hence a link to the built environment alongside other aspects), where the extractive industires are the driver for such development. There are (thus far) three Ning sites that I am interested in linking to from our website http://www.eisourcebook.org once I have a Resources page up and running there. These 3 ning sites are: Be2Camp, Gender in Value Chains http://genderinvaluechains.ning.com/, and GOXI, http://goxi.org/, which is Governance in Value Chains.
Anyway, my question is whether there is HTML embed code that I can use for Ning sites, starting off with be2camp, that does the same thing as the Find Us on Facebook plugin at http://www.naturalresourcecharter.org/
Thanks for your warm welcome, I also enjoyed our meeitng a couple of weeks ago, and hope there will be opportunities to collaborate in the future. Unfortunately I am not able to make the next event, but will be at the event in Birmingham if at all possible - it is in my diary.
Definitely. The life-blood of Be2camp comes from two sources: online and face-to-face - with the latter feeding the former. Would be good to have you involved with our event plans for early 2010 (maybe come and speak at our February SMW event - just provisionally announced?) or maybe look at doing a Be2camp/Reorb in Scotland?
Thanks for the welcome Paul! We're really keen on building lots of features into Reorb to encourage sustainable development / redevelopment of commercial properties. Maybe we could have a chat in the new year about that and about running a joint web event?
How are you? It is really great to see such nice words on my wall. Many thanks for your kind greetings. That is very nice of you!
Sorry for the late reply, has been quite busy meeting several deadlines at this moment. Just curious, who are the main populations of Be2Camp, are they all architects, Construction Consultants, IT experts, Academics of architectual or others? Is it only a networking online group for AEC professionals to know each other, or do we hold regular online forum to discuss various opportunities?
Sorry to ask so many questions, hope you don't mind.^_^
Your early reply and warmhearted help will be highly appreciated.
Hi Paul, I would love to attend as it certainly looks interesting, but don't think I can justify the trip down from Glasgow. I've forwared to my colleague Sarah Graham, who's based in London in the hope that she can attend instead. Any plans to make online access available?
Apologies for the delay in joining. I am always a little shy of signing up to new communities in the first instance, as I like to allow time for them to develop in order to ensure they are relevant and that I can contribute to them.
I am also conscious that I don’t want to display signs of FB trophy syndrome; a term I often use to describe those striving to be the most popular by collecting an extensive list of FB friends via quick 10 minute drunken chats and quick photo opportunities, but never reconnect again. Personally, I have a fear (only a minor one) that the current cross pollination of less formal social media could potentially lead to people collecting communities in much the same manner. Would such behaviour be detrimental to the value of the community and its inhabitants, maybe a future forum question?
The above said, I am a great supporter of such new developments (don’t want to be excommunicated before I have even complete my profile) and look forward to being part of the community.
I have yet to establish how much involvement I will have with BLL09, but happy to provide updates in the meantime, if no link currently exists. Let me know?
Yes would be delighted to do a presentation either during the day or evening.
I was in Libya recently working with Rlf on a proposal for their Social security fund who are planning to build lots of hotels. Managed to get out of Libya just before Magrahi arrived!!
Hello Paul and thank you for your welcome message.
I did notice the session on Web 2.0 and I would be very interested in participating. However, I am not sure I will be able to make it, as a client of mine is planning a press conference around those dates (final dates will be confirmed later in the year) and I will need to be there.
Thank-you for the 'Welcome' message Paul. Seem to have been connected with a number of similar like-minded people (work and interests) through Twitter for a while, including IT & Internet in the Built Environment, thus relevance and 'sign up' (though late!) here.
