A semi-recurring feature – this time, focusing on my latest internal initiative re: the Internet of Things. Some items that I think are worth your time, sourced from a variety of places around the ‘net – I’ll try to give credit for the recommendations where it is due. Some of these are older, some quite recent – I’ve got a backlog of interesting stuff to share. As always – your comments, observations, and other recommendations are always welcome!
- Futurist’s Cheat Sheet: Internet of Things: From 2012 – a quick primer explaining what the hype is all about.

- The Internet Of Things Will Be Huge, And So Will Hadoop: There is definitely a connection between the old hype (Big Data) and the new (Internet of Things). Pay attention to your still-developing standards.
- RISC creator is pushing open source chips for cloud computing and the internet of things: Computer scientists at UC Berkeley are joining the fight for open source chips; they view it as a true open source project that can empower smaller companies and even researchers to innovate on chip design.
- How GE got on track toward the smartest locomotives ever: These sensor-packed locomotives compute some 150,000 data points per minute. [jpm note – we’re getting into some Digital Manufaturing here …]
- The Internet Of Things Will Need Millions Of Developers By 2020: The real money in IoT is not in the “things,” but rather in the Internet-enabled services that stitch them together. This will translate into phenomenal demand for folks who can create these services. [jpm note – and consumer them as well …]
