Since I'm just getting into using the Arduino, this column came at a great time for me -- I can see all sorts of uses for being able to embed these little boards in all sorts of projects ... once I'm a bit further along, I think I'll be investing in a bunch of these little beauties.
Thanks for constantly finding all of this interesting "stuff" -- I already pledged to that Pixy machine vision system for the Arduino Kickstarter project you blogged about -- my big problem is whether I'm going to be able to afford to keep reading your columns since they keep leading me to buy "stuff" :-)

Listen in as proponents of leading contenders make their case to be the metro or national IoT network of the future. Rick Merritt, EE Times Silicon Valley Bureau Chief, moderators this discussion.
