Finding Reality in a Virtual World

When we started AutomatedBuildings.com 17 years ago we created an online vehicle design to connect the reality of the large building automation industry to a virtual world the internet / web. Today the ease of publishing online allows anyone and everyone to post everywhere. We all are struggling with the blizzard of information and the actual reality within the variety of virtual formats. We all seek guidance and appreciate the sharing from our trusted people and sources to find clarity and even reality within all this virtuality.

I find myself reading and surfing more and more all kinds of social media; LinkedIn, Twitter, and the flavour of the month medium to find gems of the new reality. It is now so easy to generate information with slick graphics and videos one needs to decode each presentation for relevance in addition to trying to discover the reality within.

When we started our online magazine, they described the internet as the world's greatest ever library with all the books on the floor. We have not achieved much but now we have the complication of still organizing the mess on the floor which now contains several valuable scribbled notes in blog bits and various social media formats.

As resident old guy in the industry it is my mission to help our industry find our new reality in a virtual world. We are extremely pleased with our editorial staff and the continuous parade of new authors that join forces with us each month to build trust and help you find your new reality in our industry.

We all need to find our own reality as owners, consultants, and integrators to implement all the virtual greatness being depicted.

Also I have another crusade, please read this month's review where I request help.  In coming months I want engage you my readers, and my many authors, to help me create "A Road Map of the Possible for Connected Buildings."

I was unable to attend an extremely successful RealComm/IBcon this year but was glad that my message of growing the industry younger was included in the show magazine.

These reviews and many other references to the event are part of our July issue.
