Hi everyone. It's been a long time since I've been active on the blog. I took about two years off to do a lot of things and re-evaluate what I feel is important in my life. The journey took me to the Himalayas, China, the Japanese countryside, and many other places. I'll be posting more about that later. In the meantime, I've been quietly following the sensor network industry, especially as it transitioned to the "Internet of Things" (which is kind of a weak buzzword since it really has no meaning).
I used to run a sensor network RSS feed a few years ago back when there was a deluge of protocols (Zigbee, 6LoWPAN, BLE, Z-Wave, Enocean, Ant, etc...). Things were tough to follow and so I curated a newsfeed that aggregated sensor network news from many sources, personally sifted out the decent ones from obvious crap, and tried to present an informed newsfeed for the sensor network community. Now, there are a lot of new players, a lot of things happening, and I still feel like a lot of the fundamental issues have not been addressed. In any case, there's enough exciting things happening that I feel like I need to start keeping up with the news again. And what better way to do that than to bring back my old sensor network newsfeed. This time, I guess it can be properly called an Internet of Things newsfeed, but it's mainly a newsfeed curated by me of things in the realm of sensor networks and IoT that are interesting. If you have a chance, please check it out. Here's the link to the RSS :)
