BLAUGI recently posted some news about the two eZines that AUGI produces. The short story is that AUGI | AEC EDGE (AAE) is "no more". It will be combined with AUGIWorld (AW). As the editor for AAE you might think that I'm sad or shocked that I'm suddenly out of work. I actually started the ball rolling by asking some questions and making some suggestions. The end result is that AW will become a monthly eZine and take on some of the formatting that AAE used. For the near future I'll be the Editor-in-Chief. The next issue of AW will explain things in a bit more detail.

Going forward we will be seeking authors and articles for the broad spectrum of products that AUGI members use and we'll be working on a monthly basis so more and more often!! Stay tuned!

...snip (text from BLAUGI post)
In 2009 Autodesk User Group International launched a new publication – AUGI | AEC Edge. Devoted to the AEC market, it was started so that AEC articles could be published on a regular basis. The magazine was published on a seasonal basis but had no set release schedule.

In late 2010 the AUGI Board began a review of all current publications and entered into 2011 with the goal of increasing content and increasing regularity on issue dates. As such, the AUGI Board has made the following adjustments, starting with a new February 2011 AUGIWorld issue.

  • AUGI | AEC EDGE will be rebranded as AUGIWorld.
  • The A/E/C content will remain, the articles and columns that have been embraced by our subscribers and the industry will continue.
  • New industry content such as Civil and Manufacturing will be added.
  • AUGIWorld will increase publication to monthly.
  • AUGI | AEC Edge will cease title publication however all past issues will remain available online.
Everything that was great about AUGI | AEC Edge will continue, just under the AUGIWorld masthead. Feature content topics will be expanded in the future to include regular Civil and Manufacturing sections. Distribution via email notification to all opt-in subscribers will be increaseing from the 90,000 AUGI | AEC EDGE subscribers to 130,000 AUGIWorld subscribers.

And all content will be available online via the new AUGI Library. We look forward to the expanded reach of AUGI membership content.
