Resolved: That 2015 Is When Privacy & Security Become #IoT Priority!

I’m a right-brained, intuitive type (ENFP, if you’re keeping Myers-Briggs score…), and sometimes that pays off on issues involving technology & the general public, especially when the decidedly non-technical, primal issue of FEAR comes into the equation.
I used to do a lot of crisis management work with Fortune 100 companies, and usually worked with engineers, […]

IoT Security After “The Interview”

Call me an alarmist, but in the wake of the “Interview” catastrophe (that’s how I see it in terms of both the First Amendment AND asymmetrical cyberwarfare), I see this as a clarion call to the #IoT industry to redouble efforts to make both security AND privacy Job #1.

As blogged by GigaOm, ABC News reported this week on an incident […]

CRUCIAL: more media coverage underscores need for IoT emphasis on privacy & security

I say that because I spent a decade as an award-winning corporate crisis communicator — on more […]

GE Crowdsourcing Design For 3-D Printing Project

OK, I admit to losing all sense of objectivity on this one! After all, it hits all my sweet spots:

Internet of Things (AKA General Electric’s “Internet of Things”)
3-D printing
crowdsourcing/collaboration.

As I wrote earlier, about GE’s collaboration with Electric Imp and Quirky, this exemplar of Industrial Age might (what could be more powerful than a GE locomotive???) […]
