OK, this one goes out to my designerly friends. Well, people on the manufacturer's side too. Just no software people. Got that?
After one of my American Gothic posts from the last few weeks ago, a mini conversation started in the comments about design software. It started with Pam Rodriguez and me and then Sue Murphy got in at the end. I think Pam missed it. Pam's a Chief Architect fan, I'm a SketchUp fan and Sue was wondering about the relative strengths and weaknesses of the different design and architecture rending programs out there.
I suggested that we have a panel discussion about it and that's what we're going to do.
I'd like to schedule a conference call at some point in the next week or so to talk about design software. This is not a sales or a recruitment tool, let me be perfectly clear about that. This is an exchange of ideas, peer to peer.
The great folks at Masco are going to let me set up a Webex for this round table discussion. Doing this as a Webex will allow everybody to take turns sharing desktops and that way everybody can see how you use your design software.
Again, this is a peer to peer opportunity, a chance to talk about software strengths and weaknesses without any providers listening in.
Whattya think? Who's in? Drop me a line here or through Twitter and let me know if you're interested. I'll coordinate everything else.
