Summary via postscapes

 

Andrew Fisher @ajfisher put together a lengthy post on Tuesday titled "Towards a sensor commons"

 

Begins with:

"The action taking place is the creation of what I call the Sensor Commons. Why is this a revolution? Because as a population we are deciding that governments and civic planners no longer have the ability to provide meaningful information at a local level."

 

Definition:
"For me the Sensor Commons is a future state whereby we have data available to us, in real time from a multitude of sensors that are relatively similar in design and method of data acquisition and that data is freely available whether as a data set or by API to use in whatever fashion they like.

 

My definition is not just about “lots of data from lots of sensors” – there is a subtlety to it implied but the “relatively similar in design and method of data acquisition” statement."

 

and then goes on to break down 5 things he thinks are requirements for the Sensor Commons:

Gain trust Become dispersible Be highly visible Be entirely open Be upgradeable

Tempo wants to be the database at the center of the Internet of things

Tempo wants to be the database at the center of the Internet of things | The P2P Daily | Scoop.it
Once we connect 50 billion devices to the web by 2020, what will those devices talk to? Chicago Startup Tempo hopes those sensors will take to its database as a service — depositing their tiny bits of time series data inside its custom database.

The Internet of Things: A Boom for Hosting » Data Center Knowledge

The Internet of Things: A Boom for Hosting » Data Center Knowledge | The P2P Daily | Scoop.it
The “Internet of Things” will transform the hosting and data center industries, generating a tidal wave of data that will prompt companies to enlist third-party providers to help them manage it, according to analyst Rachel Chalmers.

 

An ‘Inflection Point’ Ahead

Even greater opportunities lie ahead, said Chalmers, driven by the proliferation of Internet-enabled devices, known as the Internet of Things.

 

“There’s an inflection point coming that will dramatically raise the stakes and rewards,” said Chalmers. “Every single (enterprise) is in the process of redefining themselves as an information company. We believe hosting and managed services providers stand to be the main beneficiaries of this trend.”

 

The trend has begin in earnest with smartphones, but will accelerate as more devices and sensors become web-enabled and share data to help companies understand consumer behavior and business trends.

 

Mobile as a Precursor Market

“The Internet of mobile devices is already here,” said Chalmers. “There is a far bigger constellation of end points on the horizon. The numbers are poised to explode. We deeply believe that mobile is a precursor market for the Internet of things.”

 

The volume of data generated by all those devices will test the existing infrastructure for many enterprises, Chalmers said.
