April 2022 - "Radical Reinvention Reconfiguration & Forced Evolution"

Our industry and others are immersed in immense change.  The Communication of that Change
is of the greatest importance and is fundamental to our forced evolution. We all need to be part of that communication.

We are all involved in our own "Radical Reinvention Reconfiguration & Forced Evolution" and we need to communicate our progress not only with our industry but the world.

The world is in the same transition and their progress radically effect our reinvention with concepts like the Uber effect. Thinking out loud allows us to communicate effectively with our younger connected mentors who see a new world with a new way of doing.

AutomatedBuildings.com is deep in our own reinvention trying to see how to best to have the industry engage in the communication of our change.

I am very pleased with Our LinkedIn online group was created for discussion of our magazine created in 2010  AutomatedBuildings.com Online Magazine Forum now has over 4700 members and has taken on a life of its own. I read the group with the same interest as everyone else to see what folks want to share what new and trending.

We all need a place to tell our story in our own words so the world know who we are.

In gathering information for our web resource our biggest single problem is folks are too busy to tell of their reinvention or it is not evolved enough to share.  We all need the "What Happened to your Tail? and You Grew Legs?' conversation while we are in this forced evolution.

ESG and Carbon reduction are our new measured Variables that point at the survival of our species, our contributing editors explain
