"The Currents of Space" was OK, but I'm not driven to see it as a film... ...however... I WOULD LOVE to see "The Caves of Steel" followed by "The Naked Sun" made into films...

I really enjoyed "The End of Eternity" and the "Foundation" trilogy. Another from Asimov that would make a good movie is "The Currents of Space." Some of the underlying "science" is now known to be invalid, but the story line is pretty good. It fits into the Foundation universe, but doesn't follow the "big mystery, search for the right planet" formula that some of his later books spent too much time on.

I loved 2001. When I heard that they were making Lord of the Rings (again) I thought "Noooo!" (having seen all the previous attempts) ... but I really enjoyed the end result. Please do accept this blog as a suggested reading list -- as far as I am concerned they are all absolute gems...

I usually hate movies of books, for the reason that they usually destroy your carefully built up imaginings of the world of the book. Which is as much a criticism of my own imagination as one of that of the movie-maker. For that reason I enjoy something like Star Wars, cruddy though it may be, more than Lord of the Rings (for example) because I get it with no preconceived ideas about what it should look like. I've always loved 2001 because it is so close to the book - which is because the film and book were made together. And there are still some big differences! But I'll take this blog as a suggested reading list Max, and many thanks for that....

What are the engineering and design challenges in creating successful IoT devices? These devices are usually small, resource-constrained electronics designed to sense, collect, send, and/or interpret data. Some of the devices need to be smart enough to act upon data in real time, 24/7. Specifically the guests will discuss sensors, security, and lessons from IoT deployments.
