[UPDATE: View the Alex Frommeyer Storify for a recap of the live Q&A]
A few weeks ago I was reading a blog post from fellow Louisville tech entrepreneur, Alex Frommeyer, about the security concerns that many are and will have about handing over their personal data to the internet machine. Once I finished reading the blog post, I knew we had to chat about this on #MobileChat.
Why? Because if the 20th century was about “electrifying all the things”, then the 21st century will surely to be about “interneting all the things.”
In other words, how can all the hardware that has been connected to the electrical grid like refrigerators, stoves, and televisions, also be connected to the informational grid?
There are lots of big companies working on this. From Nest working on connecting your thermostat and smoke detectors to GE Brillion working to connect all of your electrical appliances and gadgets. There are many more examples which we will discuss on the next #MobileChat but I’m also curious, as discussed in Alex’s article, as to how quickly people will embrace the “Internet of Things.”
Join us Wednesday July 23rd from 9-10pm ET via #MobileChat on Twitter as we chat live with Alex about the Internet of Things as well as his current endeavors which include the Beam toothbrush and Uproar Labs.
Chat more soon – Patrick Goodman
