I enjoy teaching. I teach at University level (Oxford and UPM – Madrid). I also teach young people the principles of Computer Science using Space technology using a live Satellite in collaboration with Ardusat. Over the last decade, education itself has changed with more emphasis on Online education. This allows us (as teachers/tutors) the opportunity to explore new modes of learning. However, the principles of learning have not changed. I believe, in many ways, we now need to come back to the more traditional/timeless principles of teaching in a Digital world
IoT (the Internet of Things) took center stage at CES last January. Many watchers of the giant Consumer Electronics Show opined the array of new products entering this space (many aimed at mainstream consumers) was the main story from Las Vegas this year.
Rewind a few months earlier to EPIC2015 in São Paulo, Brazil, and twenty-five ethnographers are sitting together in a room to consider how IoT fits with human behavior (and how our discipline can forge a better fit).
Driving safety has been the focus of vehicular networking research and development for the past 15 years. Standardization is mostly complete with voluntary roll-out starting in Japan. Current generation is based mostly on broadcasting of beacons.

Chris Skinner has a new book out, ValueWeb, which describes in the words of its lengthy subtitle “how FinTech Firms are Using Bitcoin Blockchain and Mobile Technologies to Create the Internet of Value.”
It may appear to a cynic that Skinner is simply entering the already crowded sweepstakes for “who gets to invent the next buzz phrase?” The “internet of things” has already been chewed up and spat out as buzz material. So now … the Internet of Value? But let’s not be cynical today.
View, Jawbone, and Sonos don’t ring a bell when it comes to the Internet of Things (IoT), the idea of connecting devices to the internet for remote data exchange. Instead, we often associate IoT with Google (driverless car), Apple (Apple Watch and Apple TV), and Samsung (SmartTv) and expect IoT products will come from these tech giants. However, those largely unheard-of companies are at the forefront of developing real IoT products that we’ll soon be using, if not later.

I am Sandeep today we released an infographic on "Internet of Things in Enterprise". I am sure you have observed how IoT is playing a disruptive role in the enterprises today. We thought of taking a closer look at the impact of IoT in enterprises and found that IoT is fast becoming a critical priority for businesses cutting across industry verticals.
If you had an unlimited budget and little need for sleep, you could attend most (but not all) of the dozens of Internet of Things (IoT) events scheduled around the world in 2016. You’d not get much actual work done, but you’d hear a lot about what’s possible when everything gets “smart and connected” and the new business opportunities that IoT will enable.
Everyone thinks libraries have a positive role to play in the world, but that role differs greatly based on whether you’re talking to a librarian or a patron. Ask a patron what libraries have in common and they’d probably answer: they share books with people. Librarians give a different answer: they share a set of values. It’s time for libraries to step up to those values by supporting access to the Internet and taking the lead in fighting to keep the Internet open, free, and unowned.
