New Materialism - Framework for the IoT?
By Miranda Bruce

Most of the hype about the IoT—that it is the best and worst thing ever—is based around a fundamental assumption: that objects are essentially inert, and that it is our duty to make them the best they can be or be responsible for letting them become the worst (or allow the worst people to take control of them).

The IoT Week will organise its 2nd hackaton in June 2015 in Lisbon – the biggest one ever in Portugal.

The IoT Hackathon Lisbon will take place on the 16th-17th of June in the Pavilion III of the Centro de Congressos de Lisboa from 8AM to 8PM.
Thursday, 18th of June, the IoT solutions will be evaluated and there will be an award ceremony inside the scope of the IoT Week 2015 Lisbon.

IoT Hackathons are melting pots of hands-on innovation and excellence where the IoT tech wizards create the most magnificent IoT solutions.

Simon Bisson: Beyond Arduino and Raspberry Pi: Maker boards bring home the Internet of things

Big vendors are infiltrating the maker movement, tapping its creative minds to build the Internet of things -- with ridiculously low-cost prototyping kits, cloud services, and dev environments

We’re all familiar with Arduino and Raspberry Pi, single-board computers that are helping build the growing Internet of things. Built around ARM-based microcontrollers, they’re low-cost, high-volume items that are easy to craft into prototype hardware, and with their easily addressable IO ports and sensors and actuators that are easy to connect to.
