Damian Wild on building Estates Gazette‘s first iPad app:
When it comes to embracing new technologies property isn’t normally on the fast train. It’s a face-to-face business, dealing with assets that usually last lifetimes. But at EG we’ve sensed a change this year. The visibility of iPads at events has shot up and, for some of the more forward-thinking developers and advisers, augmented reality is more what happens after too many drinks in a Mayfair wine bar.
The good folks at Estates Gazette have launched their first iPad app. The Special Edition focuses around the property issues (and property people) involved in sporting events like the Olympic Games, coming to a London near you next year.

And I had a blast doing it.
Laura McBride from Estates Gazette has just been on a helicopter flight over the Olympics site. This set of photos is the result:

Be2camp is a series of unconference-style events focusing on the use of social web technologies in the built environment. And given that those are two of my passions, I’m looking forward to it hugely.
