036: Labor is Cheap, Skill is Not

Summary from the Podcast website:

“Architecture and skilled craft go hand in hand, but you may not be aware that the number of skilled individuals that are required to bring an architect’s ideas to reality and in today’s episode, Andrew and I are talking about the state of skilled labor in the construction industry.  This is not a subject that receives a ton of attention, but one that can have a big impact on the work of an Architect. Currently, there is a major shortage of skilled workers in the Construction Industry and without concerted efforts on many fronts, this shortage will continue to grow.”

047 Physical computers vs virtual computers with Evelio Sánchez

Summary from the Podcast website:

“Physical computers vs. virtual computers, remote machines, external access, remote desktops… The work modes have changed and the tools too. We start by removing the cable from the mice, by unplugging the keyboards and by eliminating the ethernet connection so we have fewer and fewer reasons to remain plugged into the office table. Even so, it is important to keep some points in mind when deciding to leave the swivel chair once and for all and go to the terrace of the beach bar with our laptop.”
