About 30 days ago, when I was looking at my network configuration here at the store and at home, I realized soemthing... (ps. i misspelled the word something on purpose to catch the reader's eye). ;-) did it work?
The Internet of Things (IoT) is changing my home network in a good and bad way. For one, the home network is now bi-directional and more open than it was before as provided by our local high speed cable provider. That is good. My home network is now more vulnerable. That is bad. I will share more on those details shortly based on 3 years of honey pot research.
Back to the IoT....
The legacy business networks are going away from high bandwidth capacity provisioning since 3 years ago, and moving to the more lucrative market called "cloud based services" of all kinds; basically all things that are IaaS (Internet as a Service).
My epiphany is that machine learning and AI are going to be even closer to watching our every move to anticipate our every thought and need such that we don't really have to do things like remember to refill our milk, coffee and relish in our refrigerator, and the X10 legacy home automation of the past is now Smart Home everything. I can't even remember my wife's phone number except that my contact label say "Wifey" on it and that is all.
Mind you there are those that believe in the concept of connectivity is great and I believe that to be valid in the old school terms; like saying hello to your neighbor in person, and when walking down the street saying hello to a passerby in person with a warm smile.
Out with the old and in with the new. That has been the way of the world for centuries, yet the basics like food, water, and shelter are still basic provisions that just need to be dealt with sooner than later on a Star Trek kind of way. I am not sure the Star Wars universe believed in a Utopia of non-violence yet the Universe is large and chaos is abundant throughout the stars. Maybe that is just Darwinian at its best.
I for one am doing constant research and reporting, and innovation and reporting on the things that help our fellow mankind that is necessary; not just a want. Yes, I do like indoor plumbing and electricity at the same time yet for some reason the walk around the block is so much more enjoyable than watching an hour of television unless its a PBS Nova or National Geographic segment on the planet or some form of life being explored.
I progress and digress at the same time yet I believe that all is good considering the many distractions we have. I still need to get my head and arms around videography of my nuts and bolts of technology and life concepts. I did that with my book "What's my Value Add?" and "Data Science by Andy", and of course my first and hardest writing for my wife the fictitious based on a true story called "The Appellant".
More to come...
What is your invention for today. You can go through the process of getting one or just be happy you had an idea that could be an invention. You have to know someone to get through the zoo of the USPTO these days.
Blessings in advance and pay it forward... like we always should do...
