Stories like this help to illustrate why cutting out cable tv has been so easy.
 
Big numbers from yesterday's Xbox coverage on TWiT. Looks like we'll be doing more of these...

"Architects will need to become more involved in the networked world that we now live in. Instead of the perception that now prevails, where architects are often viewed as an expensive nuisance and obstacle, architects need to position themselves as integrated and essential resources for improving the built environment. The walled gardens of architects such as Frank Lloyd Wright and Frank Gehry will be replaced by forward-thinking design consultants that move easily between disciplines, with an eye for cost and energy efficiency."

Combining magic and management consulting - not as far-fetched as it sounds.

Did you read the article/watch the video? I think Fernando Buscema does an excellent job explaining his premise.

Would love to get a sense of the cost per square foot for LEED EB:OM certification at these projects...
 
605 Third Avenue and Park Avenue Plaza - each a 1 million-square-foot, Class A #Midtown office tower - have earned LEED-EB: OM certification from #USGBC. http://bit.ly/19eBiTn
Two more high profile, Class A Midtown office buildings have earned LEED-EB: OM certification from USGBC, pushing New York City's total number of LEED-EB ratings to nearly 50.

"Hot can be cool, and cool can be hot, and each can be both. But hot or cool, man, Jazz is Jazz." - Satchmo
 
Today is...
International Jazz Day!

When Louis Armstrong was asked what the definition of jazz was, he famously replied "If you've got to ask, you'll never know." Today is a worldwide day of celebration of jazz and its unique history.
The official birthplace of jazz music is New Orleans, but Kansas City and Chicago also have similar claims. Jazz fuses together African and European musical traditions. Blue notes, syncopation, and swing notes are all found in this style of music. There are many different sub-genres of jazz including early ragtime, swing, and bepop. Improvisation is also a large component of jazz; musicians often only start a song with one key and time signature from the bandleader.
International Jazz Day was created in 1991 by musician D. Michael Denny at which time a statement was recorded by the U.S. Congressional Record to officially recognize this day. To enjoy International Jazz Day, sit back, relax, and listen to your favorite jazz tunes!

I love this quote:

"To do that effectively, the old way of providing customer service won’t do. Too often, the traditional rep on the phone was trained to do one thing and one thing only, which is pass a complaint up the bureaucratic chain of command, receive a resolution, and report it back — a classic centralized model of corporate communication. Today’s customer service agent, on the other hand, must be nimble, smart, fast, attentive, personable, and talented at defusing volatile situations and creating new opportunities."

Story
Tagline
More From Less - Construction Consulting, Business Development & Digital Media Strategy
Introduction

My name is Brian L. Hill and I am the CEO and founder of BLHill Inc., a consulting firm that helps buildings and businesses achieve more from less. My company offers a wide range of services to improve quality and add value, while reducing wasted energy, effort and expense. 

Also, my father and I recently launched a joint venture project called mending wall (sg) or Mending Wall Solutions Group. We minimize risk and maximize the return on real estate investments.

Passionate about improving quality in the built environment, I am the editor and publisher of AEC Quality Magazine, which explores quality and risk management in the architecture, engineering and construction (AEC) industry.

In addition, I volunteer with the San Diego Green Building Council. I am currently co-chair of the organization's Marketing Committee and am working with a team of experts pursuing LEED certification at a number of Balboa Park landmarks.

To really get a feel for who I am and my approach to life and business, I recommend visiting my blog, More From Less. An early adopter of social media, you can find me active on Twitter (@BLHill), LinkedIn and Google+.

I live in San Diego, CA with my lovely wife and our three kids.
