lost in thought
with Barry C. Collin

IDSA, CEO, Collin Group, Inc.

I'm inspired by the creative adventurers who usually ask, 'what if''? And, by the warriors who usually reply, 'Yes, we can make that happen.'

To me, brilliance is seeing what others don't ' and sharing those visions. Insight in a vacuum is a waste.

At least once, everyone should do something incredibly silly that doesn't make a difference. But also, do something incredibly dangerous that does matter. Some frivolousness and bravery make life fun and compelling.

At the moment, I'm obsessed with creating true value propositions for the Internet of Things. It's tech's time to put on its big boy pants.

I'd define my personal style as a mix of intensity, humor, and speed.

My tools of the trade are a mix of beautiful analog and digital things. We live in both the physical and virtual worlds; you should enjoy and benefit from the best of each.

I'm happiest when
people know they can now achieve more having worked with me. Their success fuels my heart, and my own success.
