Sam i guess i structured my question incorrectly.

Is William J. Locklin still considered the grandfather of low voltage? and if so why is no one talking about him. I checked the archives and I see nothing. What gives.

He is the President of Nightscaping and was a pioneer in the low voltage lighting industry. Supposedly has over 40 years experience in the industry.

Maybe because he stills does things the old way and has failed to keep up with new technology is why he is considered a grandfatherly figure. Maybe we should thank him for his innovations so many years ago, but there is better products and methods out there today.

TheHotShotKid - one more reply even remotely resembling the garbage you have already posted in this thread and you will be shown the exit....

If you do not like someone on this site use the "ignore" feature - otherwise, keep it to yourself.

Nightscaping is still doing some innovative things. I think that there are always going to be new things out there to try and those who try them become loyal to them. I think Nightscaping could do some things differently but I don't know everything. I have had the pleasure of sitting down with Bill on the tialgate of a truck and I can't imagine many other men with his wisdom.

some might say that the company went out with the dinosaurs and the ice ages. Others might say they are the originators so they must be the best. Go figure.:drinkup:

referring to the book "the big moo", there are companies out there with ground breaking ideas and have implemented them only to have another company with a better marketing machine take over the industry. Marketing and always seeking more innovation in your market. I think these are two areas Nightscaping is working to improve on...I believe they are having success

You've got to have sentimental value but unfortunately they've fallen so far that it may be impossible to rise from the ashes like a phoenix. We'll see.:laugh:
