OK 2015, Now What?
Once again after a couple weeks off and the calendar odometer flipping
another year, I’m sitting here with a blinking curser wondering what to
write about. And the thing that pops into my head are Things. The
Everythings. While 2014 was the hype year for the Internet of Things (IoT),
according to many 2015 will be the year that IoT…and really the Internet of
Everything, becomes mainstream. It is occurring this week at CES where tons

DNS will become even more important as additional sensors, monitors,
actuators and other ‘things’ connect to the internet. It helps those

Intelligent DNS Scale Reference Architecture which delivers the peace of mind
that comes with knowing that your web applications will respond to all DNS
queries—keeping your content and applications available to your users
What happens when the gadgets you wear also control the things around you?
No doubt you’ve heard of various internet-connected things like light

track your fitness, sleeping or even blood sugar levels. But when that
sleeping monitor can alert the light bulb and coffee machine that you are
about to wake up, that’s called the Internet of Self. Data from your body
that is used to control the objects around you. Your body controls the y... (more)
From Baby Boomers to Gen X, Y, & Z, there are certain characteristics that
define, at least according to demographers and historians, each generation.
Generation X, specifically, might also remember a Rush song called The Analog
Kid. While not as frequently played as Tom Sawyer or Subdivisions, it has
