Innovations in Comfort, Efficiency, and Safety Solutions.
December "Requesting Innovation"
Requesting Innovation Create your "Request for Proposal for Innovation" Innovation is a timeless ingredient, a necessary part of our successful transformation, needed now more than ever.
Edge Next Wave
If you surf, sail, paddle, or simply just stand in the water, the
shape, speed, height, and impact of the next wave can either swamp or
propel you. I predict the next wave is coming with an artificial
intelligent edge that if you are not ready for will knock you over.
This is how as your narrator I attempt to stay relevant talking about what is happening today using the eyes and intellect of my young mentors.
I spent most of my early life quoting and following my old mentors. It made me look much smarter than I was but now I can relate that information to the what and why of what my younger mentors are doing today.
My advice for today is to share your thoughts in the medium of your choice. You will find kindred spirits out there in the unknown and also follow my lead and seek younger mentors. You need to be Born Again Connected Perception of our reality is everything. We need a method to disconnect from our perceptions and imagine ourselves "Born Again Connected.”
Bye the way many of my younger mentors are approaching mid life and need to find younger mentors of their own. Find, engage, celebrate them, quote them, and share and make them part of your world. They will help you grow and understand better your successes and failures and today's challenges while continuing our industries' circle of life.
Just watched "The Current War 2017" a
movie on Amazon Prime. The dramatic story of the cutthroat race between
electricity titans Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse to determine
whose electrical system would power the modern world. The flick
reminded me of a my rant from June 2008. From My 10 Takeaways from ConnectivityWeek in Santa Clara, California, my takeaway #10. I
sense a parallel to our place in time now to where politics and
technology are clashing with unusual conclusions occurring for power
political control and not the best ethical or technical solutions.
Edison was right! Westinghouse was wrong!
Imagine if Edison had been successful,
the fact that DC does not transmit well is an advantage not a
disadvantage. It is much easier to generate locally. Imagine that if
all the money that was spent on the electrical distribution grid and AC
generation was spent on developing DC generation, storage, and
renewable energy sources our buildings and homes would look more like
space stations and not conversion abortions with national umbilical
Our world has evolved to a digital world that is a DC world. But we greet this digital world with AC and wastefully conversion because energy is cheap and inexhaustible right? Get over it.
Just like the communication industry that was founded with analog devices and wire distribution systems our installed assets are shifting to become a liability. Countries that do not have this wired distribution infrastructure are able to leapfrog us in cellular wireless networks that require little infrastructure and provide improved performance for a lower cost.
Such will be the development of “off grid buildings” utilizing DC distribution. Communication and power will merge into common infrastructure
So our task is not just to Request Innovation but to control the politics of how it gets implemented
new evolving model of AutomatedBuildings.com is to connect and link to
the amazing amount of articles and blog bits that folks like you and
many others are publishing on your own blogs and newsletters. We leave
them in place as published and as illustrated but tell the world where
they are and provide links to them. They are amazing content and known
well by your networks but no one else knows about them. I feel we
can add new value by linking them to a subject matter website like
AutomatedBuildings.com and feel this would be a good transition for us
and of value to the industry.
There is a need to collect these industry gems on a subject matter online service like ours to curate, document industry discussion and explore the interaction of the tossed torches and find new value in our core. Discussing who is getting ignition from the flames and who is burnt in place are important discussions.
