Episode 96

Okay, our blockchain discussion isn’t quite over yet. Let me ask the question again, is blockchain ready to transact IoT business? The answer is still a resounding “no” but let me caveat it by saying, there are newer technologies that address blockchain’s bottlenecks and deployment weaknesses.

Episode 95

Is blockchain ready to transact IoT business? That’s the question I’ve been trying to answer during this mini series. While the quest has been intellectually interesting and frustrating at the same time, the answer is a resounding “no.” Although the tech is cool, blockchain is nowhere near ready to be used for business within the budgetable future.

Episode 94

There’s an evangelical tone surrounding blockchain and if you believe some of its biggest preachers, blockchain will completely change how the internet, and by association, the Internet of Things, will work, and in the process, will change the world. When I find myself slipping into this worldview I shake myself back into reality by looking at it from a business perspective.

Episode 93

Want to incorporate blockchain into IoT? Well, that’s a pretty tall order but you have two ways to go about it. Go it alone to build the world’s best IoT blockchain protocol and hope it’s adopted or join others that have similar goals to build the world’s best IoT blockchain protocol in hopes that it’s adopted.

Episode 92

Blockchain. One of the few technologies more hyped than IoT. Put them together and it’s a hypefest. But is it warranted? Honestly, I don’t know but I can tell you, for me, the decision is not going to be based on if it’s cool tech, it’s going to be based on, if that cool tech contributes to making more money.

Episode 101

So, what have we learned so far? In this 100th and 101st episode of the IoT Business Show I look back and give you my unfiltered take on the last 60 episodes. I’ll cover, what I learned, how it fits into the big picture and who would benefit from listening to the episode again or for the first time. Think of it as a cliff notes or a reader’s digest summary of the last 60 hours of interview goodness in under two hours. The signal to noise ratio is high so take a listen, it’ll be worth your time

Episode 67

They say data is the new oil. Well if that’s the case, then like oil, crude data must be refined and packaged to make it useful and consumable. If you believe, like I believe, that all incremental value from an Internet product comes from transforming its data into useful information, then external sources of data, when combined with internal data, can become very valuable, indeed.
