We on the other side of the Charles have a saying "if you can't get there on the [MBTA] Green Line, it's not worth going to." But then, East Cambrdge is accessible, but note the Kendall Square tech area.

A friend worked at Sonos in East Cambridge for a while, walking across the (sometimes frozen) Charles River twice a day.

@Susan: I think we need to tell that Bay Area story of the digital divide that's developing!

And yeah, I survived a nasty blzzard and several days of single-digit weather in my two weeks in Kzoo in March! Not for the feint of heart.

@burkethos: Thanks for sharing your views.

Anyone around who can still tell the story of PRAB robots? I had never heard of them myself.

@C.VanDorne: I poked my head into the old Gibson plant a couple years ago (I am a fingerpicking folkie).

It's mainly an empty shell with the Hertiage shop occupying a small part of it. I'm not enpugh of an afficianado of guitars (though I love my Taylor) to compare Heritage and Gibson except to say it looks like there's not as much energy around the old place as there once was.

As far as I know Heritage is still in business at the old Parsons Street factory that Gibson used to run.  I don't know if they use the entire facility or just part of it since they are a small operation.  I know they used to build acoustics and electrics but at some point I think they dropped the acoustics.  They don't adverstise much, preferring word-of-mouth. While I have an old Kalamazoo Gibson Les Paul Signature semi-hollow body, I don't have any exposure to Heritage.  I've read they are pretty good though.

In San Francisco Bay Area,  tech sector is being blamed for pricing most non-tech workers and lower income people out of the housing -- and even the apartment rental -- market. Kalamazoo sounds enticing just for that reason...cheaper real estate. But again, there is that polar vortex issue and hot summers, etc.

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.
