A video about website creation for the construction industry

This video proved to be a learning experience.  A few minutes before the planned Skype conversation with Nick Piscitello, I discovered that Skype doesn't have a built-in recording capacity.  With a little help from Google, however, it took only a few minutes to discover a software product (CallRecorder) that does the job, for less than $20.00.

Then, to the interview.  Quality isn't perfect.  While YouTube has some interesting editing capacities, I didn't see (at first review) how to crop out end-takes (or in this case, beginning takes.)

So, what you see is what you get . . . uh, not exactly.  I'm not a video editor nor am I a website creator or graphic designer.  Technical quality at any do-it-yourself project in these disciplines (and yes, the blog counts in that category) is likely to be less-than-perfect.  The key is to hire or contract with competent employees or contractors to do the actual work.

Nick certainly can handle the website design for most AEC businesses, at a price you'll undoubtedly find to be affordable.  You can see his website at

(The site he is working on for us, the corporate website for the Construction News and Report Group of Companies, is still in development, but you can see the work in progress at
