Across My Desk
snippets, blog bits, tweets, linkedIn posts, and url links that are about to fall off my desktop
Founder, Owner, Publisher AutomatedBuildings.com
Every month there is a blizzard of information contained in the emails and newsletters that cross my desk on their way to AutomatedBuildings.com. Some of this information is not in the form of any type of content we can publish but I feel I should share with you these snippets, blog bits, Tweets, LinkedIn posts, and URL links that are about to fall off my desktop.
On a daily basis I tweet as @Ken_Sinclair https://twitter.com/Ken_Sinclair
I actually now have a few moments ;-) https://twitter.com/Ken_Sinclair/moments
Tweet links I think will be of interest and part of our rapid industry evolution.
Also, http://automatedbuildings.com/ maintains this LinkedIn online blog for the magazine, a great place to interact.
I also write a column twice a month for Contractor Mag http://www.contractormag.com/author/Ken-Sinclair
And a column once a month for facilitiesnet Home of Building Operating Management & Facility Maintenance Decisions Magazines
But I still have stuff falling off my desk I feel I should share.
