Good Wednesday everyone! This week I've focused a number of the articles in the issue on videos I have collected on the Internet of Things. However, if videos aren't your thing there's still plenty of other topics. One article that I would highly recommend is the first one below on the "New Industrial Revolution".
As a reminder for those working in hardware, the Arduino.MN User Group is meeting June 4th at the University of Minnesota. Additionally, if you are a maker or interested in a wide range of technologies, you must attend the Minneapolis and Saint Paul Makers Faire.
Lots of great information and coverage this week. I hope you enjoy this issue and please tweet it to your followers!
