Summary:

Forget ovens that tweet. The internet of things will be as important as broadband, and will make consumers’ lives easier as well as business more efficient. We’ll talk about it all in our new podcast.

The Internet of things is both a real opportunity and incredibly over-hyped. But because I love all things connected and anything having to do with chips and data I decided to start talking to people who hope to make the internet of things, not only a reality, but also an opportunity to offer innovative services and create new businesses.

In the inaugural podcast I interview Mike Soucie, the VP of sales for Mobiplug, a startup that’s building a connected gateway. But first, my colleague Chris Albrecht and I give you a little preview on why the internet of things matters.
