My full-time job is still in Internet-based technologies and in particular, Java. As a result I am in constant contact with those in the technology sector and there are some very interesting developments at this time, which will bring all sorts of benefits for those growing food and keeping animals. Many will be around using resources and inputs much more efficiently. At this meetup we will discuss the general thrust of technology aligning with Permaculture and in particular:
• Rural based Internet and Farm Area Networks.
• The Internet Of Things (IoT) and devices/sensors etc.
• Blockchains, Ethereum and coming Internet Of Value (this one is particularly exciting prospect).
As always we shall have some vegetarian dishes and you are welcome to bring something yourselves of course and I assure this will not be a boring technology filled Meetup. It will focus on how we can use emerging technologies to the benefit of all.
