20/20 Vision

John Baron

One of the most fascinating developments through my time in our remarkable electrical industry is the introduction of the electronic world to the electrical world. From someone who used to telex orders into factories on a long strip of punched paper over a dedicated phone line to EDI today, it has been an unbelievably transformational experience. Once the genie was placed into the systems, as opposed to out of the bottle, it has been one technological enhancement over the next.

This merging of electrical and electronic worlds is not completely unique to the electrical industry, but it is distinctive in its impact on our lives. We are experiencing the first wave of this convergence in our generation, and while we always have a need to define all the various generations — Boomers, X, Y, Millennials — we are all still in this together to be the best we can be for all the players in the game. The Internet of Things, smart homes, smart building automation, smart grids, they all impact our professional and personal lives with the touch of a finger or the sound of our voice.
