Last Sunday I was chatting with a friend of a friend in the pub, and we got to talking about our interests. Over a few beers, we talked about Arduino, Home Automation and the Internet of Things. He works for a major multinational electronics corporation, and so it was really interesting to hear his perspective.
A few days later, I got a message from him in my inbox, inviting me to attend a meetup event on November 20 called ProductTank.
ProductTank November is all about our connected world of things. We are now living in a world where the web has spilled beyond the screen and into the physical world: connected devices are becoming commonplace and the smart home is now a reality. But what challenges does the Internet of Things bring from a design and product management perspective?
It sounds fascinating. I’m really looking forward to hearing from Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino, founder of the ingenious Good Night Lamp, Claire Rowland from AlertMe.com, and Alex Jones of Fjord. It just goes to show, sometime you should talk to strangers.
