Why a Blog?

I want to help YOU understand what the Internet Of Things (IoT) holds for you and your company.
I very often meet people that are afraid to ask the questions that, in fact, everyone is looking to have answers to:

  • What is the IoT?
  • What does it mean?
  • How can I benefit from it?
  • What are the technologies out there?
  • Etc.

I want to bring answers to those questions through blogs, interviews, and books.
