    Looks like AutoCAD is growing a family editor....

    there are many autoCAD 2006 'teasers' out there recently, including Lynn Allen's Blog, Shaan Hurley's Blog, plus our own Richard Binning's Blog, and more:

    http://lynn.blogs.com/lynn_allens_blog/
    http://autodesk.blogs.com/between_the_lines/
    http://autodesk.blogs.com/between_th...d_binning.html

    Hmmm...where are we gonna start seeing some Revit 8.0 teasers, and how come no one has a Revit Blog?

    Revit could stand to get some of those Annotation features from ACAD...helck, even the ACAD r14 text editor was better than the current Revit text editor.

    I sort of think AUGI and a Revit Blog would be redundant. Instead of many people writing in you'd see only one (or a select few)...not sure of the advantage unless it were a Revit 'bigwig' with lots of juicy info.

    Revit 'bigwig' with lots of juicy info.
    That's why we need a Conant or Tamas or Tatlin or FK or Christie Landry or.....Blog.

    It is unfortunate there is no Lynn Allen marketing equivalent for Revit. Hopefully the Revit marketing people are busy finding a new advertising agency. The Revit print ads have to be about the lamest I have ever seen.
    Embarrassing is putting it mildly.

    I'd be happy to host a Revit blog. But of course I'd have to be getting that insider info to do this.

    Joef!

    Wow, thats a bit harsh, considering the marketing group is part of the Team at the Factory. I know several Revit 'Marketeers' personally, and know they are working very hard to spread the word, and make the advertisements as good as they can. I guess there are some new ones in the Wall Street Journal today???

    Perhaps some 'constructive critism' rather than just a blanket statement? What would you like to see them do? What don't you like about the ads? What do you like? How, in your mind, could they improve? They marketing group reads these forums, too, so I'm sure they'd appreciate some constructive feedback, just as we do with the programmers.

    Thanks for understanding!

    If the marketing group read this forum perhaps they might reply to the many inquiries about training that have been posted here over the past few weeks. Christie Landry said that she would respond to one inquiry when someone came back from vacation. That was in January.
    The ad that I have seen shows two basketball players. I didn't even realize that it was about an architectural drafting program (let alone Revit) till I saw it several times. Perhaps there are new ads that I haven't seen that are better than this one. Why not speak to the common misconceptions about Revit. Show some CD's., some renderings. I'm sorry if I offended anyone from marketing.
