What's everybody up to? :)

Other than the KickStarter rise and finish of the PRO introduction . . .

. . . Same Thing We Do Every Night . . .

and . . . Are You Pondering What I'm Pondering . . .

Speaking of the internet of things somehow I got to this book on amazon and the $40 book is FREE on Kindle - anyone else? I got my copy and still shows free.

Rethinking the Internet of Things: A Scalable Approach to Connecting Everything

I wasn't even logged in when it showed free, so it isn't just my account.

Rethinking the Internet of Things: A Scalable Approach to Connecting Everything
Over the next decade, most devices connected to the Internet will not be used by people in the familiar way that personal computers, tablets and smart phones are. Billions of interconnected devices will be monitoring the environment, transportation systems, factories, farms, forests, utilities, soil and weather conditions, oceans and resources.

Many of these sensors and actuators will be networked into autonomous sets, with much of the information being exchanged machine-to-machine directly and without human involvement.   Machine-to-machine communications are typically terse. Most sensors and actuators will report or act upon small pieces of information - “chirps”.  Burdening these devices with current network protocol stacks is inefficient, unnecessary and unduly increases their cost of ownership. 

@defragster - Cool, thanks for the pointer to that eBook. Downloaded!

Glad I saw it and to share.  And yes - TOO quiet.  Hopefully the PRO will bring back activity
