Episode 380 ControlTalk NOW with Ken Sinclair (aka Mr. Linkair) Automated Buildings’ October Theme: Transformation + “Tossing Transformation Torches”

Ken Sinclair aka Mr. Linkair, began his crusade in 1999. Ken’s natural instincts and his selfless desire to collect, link, and share relevant BAS and HVAC information has led to the growth of Automated Building’s unparalleled  on-line readership. Now, during the most disruptive period of the BAS and HVAC evolution, we are grateful that Ken and Automated Buildings continue to hold the torches of transformative change high enough for us to see our way forward.

The new evolving model of is to connect and link to the amazing amount of articles and blog bits that folks like you and many others are publishing on your own blogs and newsletters. We leave them in place as published and as illustrated but tell the world where they are and provide links to them. They are amazing content and knowKen Sinclairn well by your networks but no one else knows about them.  I feel we can add new value by linking them to a subject matter website like Automated and feel this would be a good transition for us and of value to the industry.

As an old guy in the industry it looks to me like our online magazine 1999 roots when we and everyone else started their own dot com and no one could find them until we started linking them together under the umbrella of a subject matter B2B website. I have alway been Mr Linkair, this is just business as usual in an unusually transformed world.

Everyone is now in the online publication industry and doing it much better than us but these self created flaming torches are burning everywhere on your own websites and on many social media platforms with a dated posting. There is a need to collect these industry gems on a subject matter online service like ours to curate, document industry discussion and explore the interaction of the tossed torches and find new value in our core. Discussing who is getting ignition from the flames and who is burnt in place are important discussions.

Please read both our November reviews 

Navigating Never Never  Our Transformation is deep inside where we said we would never, never, go; we all need more information and discussion to successfully navigate our new never. "You are Never coming back once you transform"

Mr. Linkair  Do not just talk about Transformation and how it links our past knowns to the uncertainties of our future unknowns. "Just Do It!"

Here are some examples of some Mr Linkair links we feel are important to you,
