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 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.
My Top Tweets, posts, podcasts, and video interviews

We know that art and architecture trigger our emotions, but will buildings ever evoke their own emotions? Ken Sinclair believes there is need for “An improved relationship between the physical, the virtual and the emotional world.”

How AI could transform the way we measure kids’ intelligence There is a saying in education that you treasure what you measure. Going by the standardized tests that dominate schools in many countries around the world, we’re teaching children that we value only a very narrow definition of intelligence—the ability to solve word problems about train times, or identify the purpose of a World War I treaty on a multiple-choice test.

was delighted to jointly host an event with ECA – Engaging the Circular
Economy. This event showcased the potential of an innovative
regenerative system that will change the way construction and building
services currently operates regarding refurbishments, new build and
maintenance of buildings. A salient takeaway was that society realises
that it needs to change its thinking and modus operandi. But is more
awareness of the impact of not doing so needed?
Automation and California's Community Colleges wanted to follow up on our email exchange about some of the California
Community College initiatives in Building Automation. I would be happy
to work with you on an article or two, and the process you suggested
would be fine. Here are a couple of videos to start the conversation
