"Please don't ship that. I'll pick it up myself." or the close corollary: "I don't work at the old place anymore. Sent it to my new office at..." Both have, unfortunately, happened.

I assume you will come back to us with reports on some real working devices running some real working apps. This will be exiting :) My head has been thinking what this rascal could do for my line of interests.

Also in the 'mixed message' category: I had a housemate in college -- a real trickster -- who liked to answer 'wrong-number' phone calls as if he were the intended recipient. I could only hear one side of the conversation, of course, so I usually didn't know what he was up to until it was too late. Here's one particularly cringe-inducing call that I remember overhearing: "Hello?" (...) "Sorry, he's in the shower." (...) "No, she's in the shower too, heheheh." (muffled yelling) "Uhh, well, you'll have to ask him yourself." (more yelling) "Okay, I'll tell him you're on your way." (...) "Okay, I *won't* tell him.... Okay, bye." I'm guessing some poor unsuspecting fellow had a rather unpleasant day.

"Boss, you know that new gadget we're working on? Yeah, you might want to go with a static demo this weekend, or it might let the Magic Smoke out in front of our new client. Just sayin'."

Several years ago now I received an e-mail from my son from his high school account reminding me of a wrestling meet that afternoon. I had known about and went to a meet day before but didn't know of one that day. I called the school and asked where the meet was. They didn't know of any scheduled meets so I relayed what was in my son's e-mail. They said that they would have to check. A little while later my son called to see what I needed. I told him about the e-mail and he said that he ‚had sent that yesterday‘. It turns out that the e-mail showed up in my inbox just about 24 hours late. The time was about right but I hadn't looked at the date.

For various reasons, one of my computers lives on UTC time. Sometimes people are surprised when they get an email from me that appears to have originated 4 or 5 hours into the future.

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.
