Richard Platt's curator insight, December 14, 2013 2:44 AM

We really like Galielo, it has Quark on it, and this is purpose built for the DIY crowd, we think this is very smart move on Intel's part, essentially creating an open innovation platform for all to use.  

 

And according to my sources the pet project of the CEO Brian Krzanich apparently with much resistance internally to go do it initially,.  

 

To us at the S+IG this is an easy to place bet, in fact plain smart, who else has one out there?  No one.  which demonstrates vision where others have not, and committment to go against the grain to do the right thing and to explore options and ask the larger community to go do it.  We commend Brian Krzanich for doing this, we see this as an excellent example of setting a new standard in the IoT space..  We are reminded of our days in desktop operations when Intel built the majority of the motherboards out there, and everyone bought from Intel, and I mean everyone.  

 

Who else is setting a new standard that people can get behind with technology that goes all the way to the silicon level and can integrate it into a killer platform?
