35 Open Source Tools for the Internet of Things - Datamation

If you've been involved with IT in any capacity in recent years, you've probably heard the term "Internet of Things," or IoT. According to Gartner, IoT is at thetop of the hype cycle, meaning a lot of people are excited about it, but not much real development is happening yet. While less than a billion devices were connected to the Internet in 2009, Gartner predicts that there will be 26 billion IoT devices installed in 2020, generating $300 billion in revenue for manufacturers and service providers and making a $1.9 trillion impact on the global economy.

Journalists: Print Newspapers Are Dying, Time to Pivot - TidBITS

The Roanoke Times, the local paper in my family home, is a classic metro daily, with roots that go back to the 1880s. Like most such papers, it ran into trouble in the middle of last decade, as print advertising revenue fell, leaving a hole in the balance sheet that digital advertising couldn’t fill. When the 2008 recession accelerated those problems, the Times’ parent company, Landmark, began looking for a buyer, eventually selling it to Warren Buffett’s Berkshire Hathaway Media Group in 2013. The acquisition was greeted with relief in the newsroom, as Buffett had famously assured the employees at his earlier purchases “Your paper will operate from a position of financial strength.” Three months after acquiring the Times, BH Media fired 31 employees, a bit over a tenth of the workforce.

Horses were initially complemented by carriages and ploughs, which greatly increased the horse's productivity. Later, horses were substituted for by automobiles and tractors. When horses became obsolete as a source of labor, many were sold off to meatpackers to be processed into dog food, bone meal, leather, and glue. In the United States, there were about 26 million horses in 1915. By the early 1950s, 2 million remained.

▶ Cybersecurity as Realpolitik by Dan Geer presented at Black Hat USA 2014 - YouTube

Power exists to be used. Some wish for cyber safety, which they will not get. Others wish for cyber order, which they will not get. Some have the eye to discern cyber policies that are "the least worst thing;" may they fill the vacuum of wishful thinking.
