@StacyE: Thanks so much. I guess the best we do is to become is optimistic realists.

Re: So my phone gets a second life?
sad but true, we are no longer have privacy nor security... even with our phone... what we owned... or it just a rent of new technology in exchange of having no right to privacy....

Re: The Road to a Standard
@StaceyE: That's a conundrum i struggle with on a personal level. I'm no proponent of war by a long stretch, but I have to acknowledge that many of the technologies and engineering innovations that shape our daily daily lives came about as a result of initially being developed by the military. Silicon Valley most likely wouldn't exist in its current form if it weren't for the defense spending that poured into this area in the 1950s and 1960s. So while I agree in principal that I would like to see more government spending on engineering that on military, I suspect that in reality the two are more tightly entwined than I'd care to think about.

Hopefully one day our military will be able to start putting funds back into things like engineering; instead of war.

Re: Internet Of Things: In Search Of An Architecture
@Technocrati

Maybe 'Silos' wasn't exactly the best choice of words. When we say 'silos' in a business context, we're usually talking about departments breaking themselves off and acting isolated from the rest of the business. Now, much has been said about how bad that is for business in the modern world, where everyone ought to be moving at a quick pace and decisions that affect the whole business ought to be made agily. I think, moving forward, that applies not just to departments within one business, but companies working in the same sector as well, and I'll explain why.

Susan is highlighting here the very real need for standards and architecture in the 'internet of things'. What does that really mean, though? Saying that two internet-connected items should capture, parse, and store their data in a way that is somehow uniform (so they can share data and talk to each other). That sounds great - for us. What if your competitor makes the other device? Nevermind going out of your way to cordon your data off from them, are you going to go out of your way to give it to them? I hope in the long term, companies will see that it's better for the whole business ecosystem to adopt some standards (just like cell phone chargers and memory cards), but in the short term, I think we'll be looking at a lot of non-sharing devices.

The Business of Going Digital
The Business of Going Digital
Digital business isn't about changing code; it's about changing what legacy sales, distribution, customer service, and product groups do in the new digital age. It's about bringing big data analytics, mobile, social, marketing automation, cloud computing, and the app economy together to launch new products and services. We're seeing new titles in this digital revolution, new responsibilities, new business models, and major shifts in technology spending.
