Mike Feibus: Mobile World Congress: Internet of Things for business is humming

I’ve had a longstanding debate with a former IT executive about what drives innovation in technology: the consumer or commercial and government markets. The exec argued that it was consumers, and pointed to companies like Sony and Nintendo. I took the other side, and countered with examples like IBM and DARPA.

My friend won the argument – for a time, anyway. Over the years, we’d come to discover that both of us were right. Sometimes.
