New things cannot come back to back non-stop. You've got to give people the time to digest these new technologies. While existing technology matures, it's a chance for other areas (in connection to it) to grow. Humanity and Technology should grow together hand in hand, not racing each other.
I hope you do give your stomach time to digest your food? ;)

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.
