“Connecting & Combining Communities”
Separate communities are still innovating in their own fragments. By
breaking the parts and recreating them each time, we are building new
So we are still making progress but not as the beautiful picture painted to management from outside articles or books.
In reality we have to bring technology into companies to solve problems
with small pilots and prove our ROI without access to the full data
that will create value. Especially for IoT it creates new fragments of
different clouds across different parts of the company later creating
new projects to standardize technologies. That is why we see the
centralization vs decentralization movement happening again and again.

Essential Elements of Data Storytelling
This book speaks to the how to https://www.effectivedatastorytelling.com/
“Brent Dykes is the king of data storytelling; he’s probably thought
about this more than anyone else on the planet. No matter how good your
data and analysis are, they won’t have much impact unless they are
embedded in a good story. Read this book to find out how to do that.”
Transforming data into visual communication is only one part of the
picture—it’s just as important to engage your audience with a memorable
and persuasive story.
Narratives are more powerful than raw statistics, more enduring than
pretty charts. Effective Data Storytelling teaches you how to
communicate insights that influence decisions, inspire action, and
Much of the value of our publication is bringing New Narratives that
connect the lego blocks. Explained with a story. We depend on the industry to give us those
stories but more and more the article focus on how shiny our lego
blocks are. We are depicting a new technology, a new lego block, but the blocks will likely be replaced
by a newer shiny blocks by the time the project is done.
At AHRExpo Atlanta we will Concisely present the Context of our Industry’s Value.
Our August theme was “Preparing for AHRExpo 2023” in Atlanta. Help us
curate the messages our industry wants to take to Atlanta, our 23rd
year of Education Sessions
The AHR Expo
provides a unique forum where manufacturers of all sizes and
specialties come together to share ideas and showcase the future of
HVACR technology. Since 1930, the AHR Expo has remained the industry’s
best place for OEMs, engineers, contractors, technicians, facility
operators, architects, educators and other industry professionals to
explore the latest trends and applications and to cultivate mutually
beneficial business relationships. The event is co-sponsored by ASHRAE
and AHRI, endorsed by many industry leading organizations, and is held
concurrently with ASHRAE’s Winter Conference.
In discussion with the industry all acknowledge that the conversation
has changed. We need to regroup and present strong unified
messages to our followers and the public. Much of what has changed is
the scope and the subject of our purpose. Covid has made us remote
repurposing our buildings while moving our focus to ensure healthy
environments in the buildings. We have redefined and recreated the
purpose of our original automated temperature control systems to
provide a better digital experience both on site and remotely.
Since February -"Vegas Winds & Wins"
