The Be2Awards - Best blog nomination

Absolutely delighted to make the shortlist for the Best sustainability or built environment blog for the upcoming Be2Awards. The Be2Awards are the world's only awards focused on social media in the built environment. Voting closes at midnight 23 September 2013.
This blog!
If you are new to this blog - as an introduction, a selection of posts that may be of interest from the last 7 or 8 months are below:
  • RIBA Plan of Work 2013 is now live - an overview of the new plan of work from the RIBA (and accompanying website) that was launched in June this year
  • 2012 - A year of BIM - 2012 was the *year-of-BIM* - check out a short overview of many of the things that happened
  • The CIC Growth through BIM report - My review of the BIS/CIC report that had been authored by Richard Saxon CBE (the UK Government BIM Ambassador for Growth).
  • Singapore 48 hour BIM challenge - Late, late night blog post with some video footage of prototype IFC software we were writing as part of this international BIM competition.
  • BIM and LOD - An attempt to pull together some of the information and view points on BIM and level of detail/development/information following a week of discussions on various social media channels.
And occasionally a light-hearted post or two:
I'm in London for the 2-3 days around the award ceremony, so I very much hope to get along on the night and have one or two drinks. The bad news unfortunately is that the competition is very, very strong. But still - nice to get nominated.
The shortlist
Finally, delighted with the selected quotes from a couple of the people who nominated me - a big thanks to whoever they were for the kind words:

Nominator - "often one of the first places I will now go to for information on BIM".

Seconder - "the very best kind of BIM evangelist – one who is as knowledgeable and enthusiastic about his subject as he is practical about its applications".
