At Machina Research we get involved with a lot of conferences and events around the world. I'm particularly looking forward to the Internet of Things World on 17-18 June this year in Palo Alto. I'll be chairing the Smart Cities track and we'll hope to announce some other Machina Research involvement in the coming few weeks. The speaker line-up is looking great, including the inestimable Daniel Obodovski as keynote speaker. Daniel's co-authored book The Silent Intelligence is a seminal book for anyone involved in the IoT.
