Consortium sees billions of interconnected devices providing billions of services
In the future, everything will be connected to everything else. In the meantime, organizations like the Internet of Things Consortium, formed yesterday at CES, will help fill in a lot of the blanks.
According to the organizations website:
"The Internet of Things Consortium is a non-profit organization with the mission of facilitating cooperation between hardware, software, and service providers. The IoT Consortium is primarily focused on those Internet enabled devices and related software services that directly touch consumers in the form of home automation, entertainment, and productivity. One of the goals of the consortium is to see billions of connected devices that benefit from communication with other devices and services. The IoT Consortium is based in San Francisco, California."
How to contact the organization? Not very easy. The only connection coordinate other than the domain name on the site is: email@example.com
Further, the website's biolerplate reveals:
The IoT Consortium is currently led by Jason Johnson, Managing Partner at technology incubator Founders Den and former chairman of the Wireless VoIP Consortium and vice president of Dolby Laboratories' technology standards licensing business unit.
By way of reference to interested parties, the website included the following list of stories and links.
