December Update includes a new feature - our Web Site Map located on the home page, plus a rework of your favourite resource our link library. The large number of links was becoming an issue to download for readers using low speed access. The link library has been restructured into four sections with an index page. The smaller segments load much faster and allow us the ability to expand this service. Several new sections have also been added: Independent Automation Representatives, Component & Product Distributors, Commissioning & Optimization Providers, and Network Service Providers.

A new library resource Acronyms & Definitions has also been added to help you keep current with all the annoying acronyms that we must learn to understand our future. Please send us more as you find them.

New links have been added to our Link Library so check out their services.

News for November - California here I come!  Editor Ken Sinclair has been invited to be the guest speaker at the joint meeting of the Golden Gate and San Jose ASHRAE Chapters, Dec 2nd at the San Mateo Marriott.  I welcome this opportunity to share my thoughts with the two ASHRAE Chapters that conduct their business in the center of the Internet industry for America.  My topic is: Are Automated Buildings Converging or Colliding with the Internet?

Please help me present the actual facts by sharing your views and/or late breaking concepts. Email  or call 250-656-5378, Pacific Standard Time. Your input will be reflected in my presentation. It would be great if you could come out and join us at this ASHRAE joint chapter meeting. Contact the local Chapters for details.  

It is also timely that the November issue of our online Ezine "The Automator" has the theme "How the Web is Changing Our Industry". Several great industry articles on this subject are now online. 

This issue's cartoon pokes fun at a serious concern, the digital haves and have nots in our industry. As part of the industry embraces the information revolution and our convergence, another part is attempting to carry on business as it did in the past, ignoring the signs of change. Our industry is too small to be divided; reach out and help someone who is struggling with the rapid technological changes we must all go through.

Have you tried our new feature the Site Search Engine?  Give it a try, it's fun and you will find lots of neat articles and links on our site. Looking for articles by Hartman?  Type in Hartman and hit start. Click on articles or reviews you want to view.  If you wish to search the actual matched document for a keyword use the Find Function on your browser, usually "Ctrl F".  Use our search feature to see if you are linked to us, and where.

For November there are new links in our Link Library and Software Library and new News/Press Releases. Check them out.

A special thanks to our new and ongoing advertisers. These companies make our web resource and Ezine possible so be sure to click on their banner/showcase ads under Products and become familiar with their services.  As with any good trade magazine the advertising is much of the total content and message conveyed. Please feedback your thoughts as well as the kind of information you would like to see in this internet resource. Help us get known to the world by telling a friend or colleague. 

As you can see we have been busy responding to your requests and look forward to continuing to shape into your Internet Automation Resource.

Our next issue of "The Automator" is January 1st 2000 and will be our Dallas AHR Show Issue. Our theme for the issue will be Automated Buildings in the 21st Century.  As usual we are always looking for good industry articles and will be providing space for preview articles for vendors at the show.  Please get your articles in early to avoid the Christmas crunch - deadline December 10, 1999.  Send to
