I recently had the pleasure of joining a team of experts on the Things Expo Power Panel about the Internet of Things (IoT). The panel was recorded on Monday June 9, right before the Internet of Things Expo – which is part of SYS-CON’s Cloud Expo – which was held June 10-12 2014 at the Javits Convention Center in New York City.

In this Internet of Things Expo Power Panel, conference chair Roger Strukhoff led a discussion with several industry experts on how the future of computing lies in things and how, as computing takes a much more active role in our lives, it will at the same time become much more invisible. We discuss various company strategies for IoT, the effects of Moore’s Law on IoT, how to connect all these billions (or trillions?) of things in a realistic manner, how can companies get started, and much more.

The panelists were:

Also, make sure to watch my interview with Kevin Benedict about Microsoft strategy in the Internet of Things recorded the very next day. Watch it here.

Where do you stand in the issues discussed in the panel? What does the Internet of Things mean to you? Is your company a player in that space? Are you a maker? What cool ideas do you have for connecting “things” with devices, computers and the cloud? Let me know in the comments below or on Twitter at @ActiveNick.

I’ve been spending the last couple of days at SYS-CON’s Cloud Expo in New York City – which also includes the Internet of Things Expo (amongst others). It’s been fun so far to connect with attendees at the Microsoft booth and discuss all the goodness that is in Microsoft Azure, and I’ll be back there for another day tomorrow. Yesterday I had the pleasure of meeting Kevin Benedict from Cognizant and MobileEnterpriseStrategies.com. We sat down for a short interview to discuss the Internet of Things, how Microsoft plays in that space, where things have been, where things are going, and also discuss some cool scenarios. The possibilities are truly endless.

You can watch the interview right here below. I’ve also included various links to some of the topics discussed at the bottom of this post.
