Dialog Box: Readers Have Their Say (Cadalyst Daily Archive)

16 Nov, 2006 By: Cadalyst Staff

Hot off the press for November, Cadalyst readers and Web site visitors pick our brains and tell us what's on their minds


For more than a year now, Cadalyst's Dialog Box -- the popular collection of letters from our readers that once appeared in each issue of the magazine -- has found its home on Easy for some to find and easily overlooked by others, we thought we'd bring each new installment to the attention of Cadalyst Daily readers for you to enjoy "hot off the press."

(By the way, if you like being among the first to know about the latest content posted each month on (print edition and online exclusives), subscribe to What's New at, AEC or manufacturing edition.)

In this month's Dialog Box, you'll find much more than two cents' worth of opinion and advice on the following topics:

  • Designs on plant design software.
  • Feedback about our article, Has BIM Simply Come to Mean '3D CAD'?
  • Much more feedback about outsourcing.
  • And more.
