Phil Green, a Chicago-area tile and flooring contractor with nearly 50 years of experience, and inventor of the Back Butter Buddy and Edge Strip Kits, recently shared his thoughts on the future of the construction trades. Originally published in a post to his LinkedIn followers, he graciously allowed us to reprint the following excerpts.
“I was working today at a home and the 10-year-old son of my client was in his room saying ‘Alexa, turn on song so-and-so.’ And [the cloud-based, voice-activated device] did. Then I heard him give another command to which she responded as well. I was in a good mood, so I thought I would have some fun.
