Welcome IoT Weekly News Readers!
This week we explore topics on the Internet of Things regarding business and security; arguably two of the most hot areas in the field of IoT today. On a personal note, I was extremely excited to have had the opportunity to give a keynote to the University of Minnesota Law School Symposium last Friday where I discussed the history of IoT, where it is today and some real-world examples of where it going in the future.
In particular, I illustrated a product that our team has built called The Vitals App as an example of a product that is making a life changing difference in the world.
I hope you enjoy this issue and remember to follow us on LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.
