Billy West at Boston Comic Con!

I got to meet Billy West at the Boston Comic Con 2017! If you don’t his name, you probably know his voice. He has voiced a lot of characters from some of my favorite cartoons, everything from The Ren & Stimpy Show to Futurama.

I have always been fascinated watching Billy West in action. Check out his segment on Penn’s Sunday School to get a sense of his extreme versatility and voice talent.

 

 

Are Open Source IoT Platforms Ready for Primetime?

Bruce Sinclair of IoT-Inc. recently asked me to be a guest on his Internet of Things podcast, the IoT Business Show. I have been a faithful listener to the podcast since it started so I was honored to be a part of his show. Bruce asks very interesting questions and has his audience at heart. His questions help answer questions that the audience might be wrestling with when making a decision about getting into IoT (or not).

In his latest episode, Bruce asks, “Are Open Source IoT Platforms Ready for Primetime?” My open source IoT project is ThingSpeak. I created ThingSpeak back in 2010 as an ioBridge project and it has really taken off. The source code for the ThingSpeak API is available on GitHub and is being worked on by over 100,000 developers from around the world.

Open Source IoT Platforms Podcast

To listen to the IoT Business Show podcast, check out iTunes or the IoT-Inc. website.

In this episode of the IoT Business Show, I speak with Hans Scharler about where open source platforms are today, and when it makes most sense to use them.
