Re: Drones
It's going to be really interested to watch the relationship between drones and the IOT as it develops. The visual cues that a drone can pick up traveling over an area might substitute nicely for, or compete with, the alternate of thousands of independent ground based sensors, the network connecting them and their power sources. Another thing that pops into mind is having them fly around fire-prone areas and collect data that might help to judge where the next trouble spot may emerge.

I think rules need to be put in place before next summer. A lot can happen before that and this is an important issue that seeds to be addressed immediately.
