One thing that we are all short on is time. It seems that 24 hours is never enough and our lives continue to get increasingly busy. When it comes to our jobs, we all want to learn, succeed, share knowledge and experiences and meet with our peers. For many in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry, building codes, trends and even materials change or are updated so often that connectivity is critical. And let's face it, in today's economy staying on top of your game and networking are crucial. Conferences are great for helping people connect to other industry professionals. But, they can also be time consuming; often requiring travel, conference fees, transportation expenses, etc.
At Function: we realize how busy you are, so we’ve created a new sort of “meeting of the minds”: Function 140. Hosted via Twitter, it's an online conference where you can quickly hear others thoughts (in 140 characters) and share your own. Log in and out all day long. Bring up whatever topics interest you the the most. You're the expert. Not to mention you can search the tag #Function140 to track the conversation! This will be an open forum on
Friday, April 16, 2010 starting at 10am EDT. A place where architects, buidling product manufacturers and others can share ideas, ask questions and get to know each other a little bit better. We will discuss topics including product specification, LEED, BIM, retrofit and more. Using #Function140 as a hashmark, we’re hoping to create an informal, easy place for everyone in the AEC industry to connect and talk. As the date gets a little closer, we’ll tweet to remind you, so make sure you’re following us @FunctionAtlanta!

See you there!
