I saw a wonderful movie last night called Across the Universe. It is a revolutionary rock musical that re-imagines America in the turbulent late-1960s and features 34 compositions originally written by members of the Beatles. It reminded me of the EASY IO Global Conference in Manchester England, and the trip Ken and I took to Liverpool. As you can see in this video, Ken and I explore the places were the Beatles grew up and got started. We reflect on how Smart Building Controls are in a phase very much like music was in England in the early sixties right before the Beatles and others broke the rules and changed music forever.
