Michael Koster has been building infrastructure for ubiquitous computing and putting things on the Internet for 15 years.
He has worked with large networked process control systems and M2M communication since 1980, and for the past 25 years has designed architectures for scalable and fault-tolerant computer systems, for both large computer companies like Unisys and Sun Microsystems, and for various Silicon Valley startups. He holds over a dozen patents in shared-memory multiprocessor cache protocols and web scale data consistency mechanisms.
Michael is co-founder of Abracadabra Design Studio, where we are building an open source, Semantic Web-based, Smart Object API for Virtual Objects and Software Agents on the Internet of Things. We are looking for feedback and collaboration as we build and deploy this new API in IoT gateways, web services, and client devices.
