AutomatedBuildings.com has entered its 10th year as an on line magazine and web resource while providing the news and connection to the community of change agents that are creating our present definition of smart, intelligent, integrated, connected, green, and converged large buildings. Our virtual magazine and web resource provides a searchable platform for discussion and exchange while creating opportunities for B2B for all new and existing stakeholders.
The last 10 years has seen us accumulate thousands of articles, interview, reviews, columns, new products, and news releases all free and online in a searchable format.
It has been an unbelievable 10 years for Jane and I. What started as a retirement project while providing resources to a few about the web evolution in our industry has turned into a Global Online Magazine with 3500 to 5000 visits daily. My surprise was expressed in "A Year of Rapid Change" or The Metamorphosis of a Digital Dinosaur which provides insight into who we are plus a quick review of our first year.
Our start up issue is still online http://www.automatedbuildings.com/frame_news0102.htm
The most read articles of the last Ten Years is a comprehensive list of your favourite articles rated by most reads. The page is worth a quick view just to grasp the subject matter covered and depth and width of the data we as an industry have created.
Our editorial staff and industry authors are the core of our magazine which, coupled with the fact that we never delete anything, provides a 10 year legacy of an industry growing up and is all accessible with a Google on site search.
