Together Apart   Now that we have been Covid-ized we have seen the value and necessity of working together apart.  The Covid-zation of 2020 has created, injected, extracted, but mostly simply accelerated many new relationships allowing us to connect "Together" and disconnect, be "Apart", quickly, remotely while eliminating physical travel.

Wow! Now over 20,000 folks following my personal LinkedIn account where I posted all related industry information almost daily.  I am amazed at the global reach of these following folks and their diverse perspective of our industry. I am humbled that they choose to follow me as I depict our industries evolution. Thank you all for your support.

Our LinkedIn online group created for discussion of our magazine created in 2010  AutomatedBuildings.com Online Magazine Forum now has over 4000 members and has taking on a life of it's own. I read the group with the same interest as everyone else to see what folks want to share what new and trending.

My twitter account also started in 2010 has over 1400 followers as well

Our online magazine was started 22 years ago before social media identities like, LinkedIn launched on May 5, 2003 and twitter Twttr launched to the public in July 2006, were vehicles of how special interest folks could find each other. We are working to build bridges from our long online history of controlled blogging of ongoing industry information with these and other social medias of the day. You can help as we see AutomatedBuildings.com as a landing pad for information that needs to be shared with our industry. We never throw anything away and it alway resides at the same URL.
