Richard Platt's insight:

(from the Curator of IoT & Wearables):  Ultra Low Power is going to be requirement moving forward for IoT and Wearables in many applications, good to see some companies are beginning to bring out the components to support that kind of architecture.  What other kinds of low power devices will be needed for your product application  / architecture for your IoT / Wearable device?

janlgordon's curator insight, November 2, 2013 4:56 PM



Derek Edmond wrote this article for searchengineland - I selected it because in today's world there's too much noise - getting attention from the right people will require knowledge and strategy.


The focus of the article centers around content marketing designed to attract buyers at every stage of the buying cycle, particularly early-stage awareness. which is exactly where you want to be.


Here's what you need to know:


Search is one of the first places where buyers start.


According to Pardot’s 2013 State of Demand Generation Report, 72% of product research for a future business purchase beginning on Google.


But savvy search engine marketers understand that onsite content is only one destination buyers will look to find information, assuming that content is found in search engine results.


Here's something you need to do:


Where B2B Marketers Start Buying Research: Pardot 2013 State of Demand Generation Report


Placing content marketing assets in destinations that provide a good opportunity to be found in search engine results — and also represent locations where target audiences find and share information — which is a critical component of B2B SEO.


The direct correlation is through inbound link acquisition. The long-term opportunity is the association with trusted communities and places of industry influence and trust.


There are twenty different third party sites and sources B2B marketers should consider for placing content in their SEO strategy.


I have highlighted a few that caught my attention:


Google Properties (YouTube, Google+, etc) — unique, quality content throughout Google properties isn’t just about social networking. It should provide a direct association between an organization, its thought leaders, and keyword-related objectives to the search engine.


Industry-Specific Forums — for informational search queries, we often find forum threads in search results. Forum communities are an underrated resource for developing valuable discussions and establishing brand / individual trust.

Soft Wings and the America’s Cup

Soft Wings and the America’s Cup | Low Power Heads Up Display | Scoop.it

Soft wing sails may offer an elegant solution and provide a means of keeping costs down.  Soft wing sails may capable of producing similar sorts of performance to rigid wings.  Much of the performance advantage of rigid wings comes from the multiple element design.  Multiple element wings can carry high camber due to the re-energisation of the boundary layer part way along the leeward surface of the wing which delays trailing edge separation.  These increased cambers result in higher lift generation.

We know single element soft wings are capable of generating good lift and drag characteristics. Multi-element soft wings have not really been explored but are certainly possible.  I have penned conceptual designs which, at least in the preliminary modelling, show great promise of approaching rigid wing performance.  We are really at the beginning of the technology curve for soft wings and there are significant design and performance improvements waiting to happen.
