MIMOA newsletter #6

MIMOA happy new year

In February 2007 we started with a demo-website online. Now, one year after our fist steps on the World Wide Web this young new community of architecture lovers is growing fast! Thank you for sharing your travel experiences, photos, stories and details of the projects you’ ve visited, designed and built. Keep up the good work!

2008 Starts off with a whole set of plans to make MIMOA even better, quicker, easier and above all more fun. Here’s a shortlist of features we’re working on: business profiles for architects, engineers and photographers; an image browser; downloadable KMZ files; integration of creative commons; an even more intelligent map and this year we’ll be available on your mobile!

We’d like to hear what your wishes are for 2008. If you could choose for one more tool on MIMOA, what would it be? Let us know, and we might add it to this list! Simply reply to this newsletter. Read more about our plans here.

New feature: Mi guide

In December 2007 we launched a brand new feature: the Mi guide. Now you can select projects, set them in a convienent order and make a PDF of print it. Of course this is just the beginning. The Mi guide will develop further, and soon you'll be able to search for already made guides, you can add a map, make routes and add personal texts and images. Read more or see some examples.
