@jimwilliams: I already drank the beer.

Well, that's just mean! On the bright side, I'm still only 56 (for 20 more days), so you are MUCH older than me, grandad.

@Max I'm wondering how long we can keep this idle conversation going before someone realizes that we're way off topic.

 

So, to keep this on topic..... Internet.

We never dreamt of the Internet back in 1957 (LOL)

Well, maybe you didn't dream of the internet back in 1957, but I did.  In my dream I was in my crib and had just finished a nice bottle of milk.  Then there it was, a giant web covering the entire world.  I thought to myself, that's a world wide web.

What you should have been thinking is "What on Earth did my mother put in this milk?"

Max, Jim

 57 and 57

I guess this is double-Heinz.

On my wife's 57th (39 for the 19th time) I found a Heinz bottle of something with a huge 57 emblazoned on the side and made it into a birthday card.

I prefer to think of my forthcoming birthday as the 36th anniversary of my 21st birthday LOL

One man likely did dream of something like the Web back then; JCR Liklider. See his biography, "The Dream Machine"   https://www.librarything.com/work/2051

Nearly  all the developments that make up today's Net can be traced back through his students. It's almost enough to make one a conspiracy theorist.

You might like to take a look at this article: http://www.theregister.co.uk/2014/05/09/net_neutrality_explained_and_how_to_get_a_better_internet/ for more information.

@Quintadad: Just to get back on topic, I really apppreciated the video.

I must admit I was very impressed with the video -- whether you agree with it or not, this is a fantastic vehicle to get a lot of information across in a very efficient way.

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.
