MIMOA newsletter #4

After the busy month September, a lot of things have happened. Time to look back and give a preview of things to come.

Thanks to a large and growing interest in MIMOA from all over the world, last month the magical number of 1000 registered members was reached ánd passed. Together they contributed over 700 projects and added numerous comments and ratings, within 8 months after our first steps on the world wide web. From last February onward we developed the website into what you see now, and on September the 20th MIMOA 1.0 was launched at Arcam. MIMOA won the Digital Pioneers Acadamy 2007 only one week later. The exposure we've enjoyed has helped to raise the number of individual visitors to 25.000 a month.

Now that the basics of MIMOA are finished and your feedback tells us we are on the right track, we can really start looking at the future. Here's a glance of things to come:

First on our (and your!) list is the Mi guide. To ensure you have all necessary information at hand while traveling through Europe, you can prepare by making your personal Architecture Guide. Select projects, set them in convenient order, and make a pdf or print it. Sounds good? Just hang on, we’re working on it!

Secondly we've got the Premium Profile for architects and project-team members. This is an extended version of the public profile all registered users automatically have. Here you can organize your projects, edit office description, disciplines, logo, contact-details and much more.

But most important, we would like to hear your list. What do you need? If you could ask for one more feature, what would it be? What would you use? What do you miss in the current tools you find on the site? No matter how big or small, don't hesitate to let us know.
