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

11 Dec, 2006 By: Cadalyst Staff

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


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

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

  • design software from a designer's perspective;
  • a technology disconnect in BIM (building information modeling);
  • and more.
