Welcome to Blog In Motion

Ray Butler

WELCOME to the Kollmorgen Blog. My name is Ray Butler, and I am a believer in “Motion Matters”. I am also someone who you would categorize as a user (reader, researcher, downloader, purchaser) of the web, but until now, not someone who contributes any content.

Kollmorgen, on the other hand, has been adding information and knowledge to the great web based world for many years. We have a website with technical documentation and white papers. We also connect with you through YouTube, Twitter, Facebook, LinkedIn, Google+, and our blog. If Motion Matters to you, we are trying to reach you in many different ways and provide you information.

We at Kollmorgen are problem solvers with a large body of knowledge (over 100 years since the first founder’s patent). We are broadening and deepening our reach and content on the web. Our goal with this blog is to enter into a conversation that helps us help you. In this age of information (and misinformation), it is tough to find knowledge vs. just information. My expectation is that from our blog posts and your responses, we will provide a framework for you as you deal with an ever changing and increasingly complex world.

A quote from Malcolm Gladwell: “PEOPLE are experience rich and theory poor. People who are busy doing things – as opposed to people who are busy sitting around, like me, reading and having coffee in coffee shops – don’t have opportunities to kind of collect and organize their experiences and make sense of them.”

I agree with his sentiment (though I spend no time in coffee shops). Let’s also have fun making sense of our collective experiences.

Thoughts? I welcome your comments.
