On Friday afternoon I’ll be live blogging the Honest Buildings debate about Architects and the Internet that I mentioned in my post last week.
It’s a small, exclusive event as far as the venue is concerned, at the Open Data Institute, where Honest Buildings are based in the UK. But we expect it to be a much larger event online than face to face. Already 21 people have mentioned the event on twitter, you can see what they are saying here and join in using the #webarchitects hashtag.
The main part of the event is a panel debate where we have asked some interesting industry figures and thinkers to come together and discuss their thoughts about how architects are using the internet, what they do themselves, and how they think it might develop.
But of course as this is social media, we want to hear from more than just the panel, we want to hear from you. So here is an opportunity for you to answer the questions, and perhaps to ask your own.
- Do you use the internet in your work?
- Why do you use the internet in your work?
- What benefits have you had from using the internet – tangible or intangible (i.e. contacts, leads, business, information, opportunities)?
- How do you measure the benefits you get – if you measure, what do you measure?
- What tools do you use online, and why?
- Have you changed your mind about the internet, about social media? What has surprised you the most?, and finally
- If you could ask the panel what question, what would it be?
Please feel free to answer all or any of these questions in your own way, in the comments below and online using the twitter hashtag #webarchitects in your tweets so we can pick them up. We’ll share a selection of the answers, and your questions, on Friday. We’ll be listening!
