re: Cisco CEO: We're All In On Internet Of Everything
It may seem like Cisco has called 5 of the last 2 "fundamental changes" to the IT industry, but I think this enthusiasm for the Internet of things is well deserved. There are a lot of obstacles still to remote data collection -- including cheap enough sensors, and batteries or energy-capture to power the sensors long enough out in the field. We need an innovation ecosystem around those kind of needs. But the potential looks very real.

(I'll be discussing the needed innovation ecosystem around the Internet of Things May 8 at our InformationWeek CIO Summit: )
