🎧 #014: Friendly rants volume 3: Crawl, walk, run
“To take this rant to the positive side, this should be an open, honest conversation: Are you even ready for new technology? Because if you haven’t leveraged what you have today, you’re under-resourced, you don’t have time, attention, and budget to do anything else… What is this technology going to do?”

Dennis Krieger

Welcome to Nexus, a newsletter and podcast for smart people applying smart building technology—hosted by James Dice. If you’re new to Nexus, you might want to start here.

The Nexus podcast (Apple | Spotify | YouTube | Other apps) is our chance to explore and learn with the brightest in our industry—together. The project is directly funded by listeners like you who have joined the Nexus Pro membership community.

You can join Nexus Pro to get a weekly-ish deep dive, access to the Nexus Vendor Landscape, and invites to exclusive events with a community of smart buildings nerds.

This is the third installment of a new series of shorter, more casual podcast conversations called Friendly Rants. These episodes are quick, 10-ish minute episodes on something that pisses us off. Everyone loves a good rant, right?

Note: this episode is exclusive to members of Nexus Pro. You’ll need to click “Listen in podcast app” above to add the Pro feed to your podcast player. Just takes a few clicks.

So why “Friendly” Rants? First, because our guest is my good friend Dennis Krieger (LinkedIn). Second, because we’re not here to talk sh*t on anyone (unless they truly deserve it of course). And third, because we’re not here to complain… we promise to propose a solution to our rant.
