IoT + high-speed network

San Leandro is installing a high-speed fiber optic Internet loop that might facilitate a lot of interesting experiments. What might be fun, practical, affordable, and/or interesting? Who's doing what in this area?

Join us on Wednesday, August 8, from 6-8pm
at the San Leandro Main Library,
Conference Room C (upstairs).

    Hi,

    We just develop a smart, connected & elegant e-cigarette / vaporizer to keep smoking habits under control http://igg.me/at/getkosmo/x/6219080

    Please share your feedback here.

    Ken talked about Nanode and building IoT like Lego pieces, open source and community. Showed several Arduino boards. Audience of 10, most were new to IoT. Chris shared good resources (including Adafruit.com as a good reference site).

    Will there be a projector available, or a large screen monitor?

      I just ran down and asked the Library. Their projectors may all be tied up. I will bring my 24" monitor just in case.

    I'm curious: what makes it difficult? It's about 8 blocks from BART, about 10-15 minutes from Berkeley (BART or car), Emeryville & Oakland. Do you need a ride from BART?

    San Leandro is farther from the peninsula, about 45 minutes to Mountain View/Palo Alto, or Santa Clara. No easy public transport between Silicon Valley and San Leandro.

    This seems to be like a great Meetup group, however the location makes it difficult to attend. Are you planning to move it towards the South bay area / Peninsula (Palo Alto to Santa Clara area)

    That's awesome Ken! Looking forward to this.

    I'd love to hear from others about the applicability of a high speed network. We want to collect the bits from various devices/sensors. Is that (negatively) correlated with capacity/speed of the network, as a friend suggests?

    I should be able to do a short presentation on low cost open source hardware for connecting devices to the Internet of Things.

    I can also speak about a couple of cool projects that are happening on the IoT - including the Air Quality Egg, a crowd sourced open data, personal air quality monitor, and a public space art project - a web connected, interactive sound sculpture current being installed in London.
