Blog Roll 2014 By @PSilvas | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

I broke it out by month to see what was happening at the time and let's be honest, pure self promotion. Thanks for reading and watching throughout 2014. Have a Safe and Happy New Year.

The time of year that crystal balls get a viewing and many pundits put out their annual predictions for the coming year. Rather than thinking up my own, I figured I’d regurgitate what many others are expecting to happen. IDC Reveals Worldwide Internet of Things Predictions for 2015 - So 2014, according to last year's proclamations, was the break out year for the Internet of Things (Iot) and it didn't disappoint.
