Proposed Internet-like structure connecting everyday physical objects
The Internet of things is not a concept, it is a network, the true technology enabled network of all networks” - Edewede Oriwoh In this week's Fish Fry podcast, Marc Pegulu from Semtech and I chat about the future of IoT, the pros and cons of the various networks we need to support our Internet of things ecosystem, and where LoRa and LoRaWAN fit in the grand scheme of IoT. I also examine how an off-the-shelf IoT wearable device is able to detect COVID-19 infection before symptoms appear for the first time.
“I've already come to the conclusion that with or without me, with or without you, with or without anyone in this room, Bitcoin will be the money of the world. So it's up to us to make sure that it's actually freedom money and not cuck money.”— Matt OdellMatt Odell is host of the Citadel Dispatch and venture partner at Ten31. In this interview, we discuss why each additional positive act of privacy protection improves Bitcoin's resilience and value. Perfecting privacy is not the goal; making a start is, as we don't know what the future holds. - - - - Our privacy is continuously being eroded. Current best estimates are that 2.5 million terabytes of data are produced every day. A material amount of that information has extremely lax privacy protection: 98% of Internet of Things data is unencrypted; 83% of companies encrypt less than half the data they store on the cloud; 25% of websites are visited without encryption. Vast amounts of the data we freely shed are stored, analysed and triangulated for commercial reasons. These tactics are so sophisticated that it's not uncommon for people to think companies are listening to their conversations.We are being squeezed for our data in almost all aspects of our lives while cash, traditionally the only semi-private way of transacting, is being removed from society, and CBDCs inch closer to reality. Imagine if companies or governments could access and track your income, store of wealth and all those with whom you transacted. What is currently unnerving behaviour by those who track our data could rapidly become something much more maligned and coercive. Bitcoin is freedom money. But using bitcoin privately isn't an easy task. The vast majority of Bitcoin is bought using exchanges that have stringent KYC/AML requirements. When you pair these onramps with surveillance firms like Chainalysis, using bitcoin goes from being pseudonymous to almost entirely transparent. But there are things you can do to gain good privacy with bitcoin. Tools like coinjoin and non-KYC exchanges like Bisq are getting better all of the time, and more and more people are using the Lightning Network for cash like transactions, which offers improved privacy.Perfect privacy, whether with bitcoin or not, is a pipedream. The goal is to continually improve in protecting a fundamental human right, privacy.

To support their booming urban populations, many cities are coming to rely on the internet of things to collect, share and analyze real-time data on urban environments. The data gathered helps cities do things like combat crime, reduce pollution, and decrease traffic congestion to name a few. Do you live in a Smart City? Is this introducing the prophesied Mark of the Beast? Let's talk about it.

I mean, this is everything what's going to happen. Almost a hundred percent of our life in three years right now is going to be all interconnected. It's really crazy. [00:00:28] Sam Wilson: John Humphrey's a seasoned entrepreneur author and is best known as The Revenue Generation Expert. He is an expert at implementing systems to generate ongoing income for not only his own companies, but also for his clients worldwide. John, welcome to the show. [00:00:42] John Humphrey: Sam. Great to be here. Thanks for having me. [00:00:44] Sam Wilson: Pleasure is mine. Three questions I ask every guest who comes on the show: in 90 seconds or less, can you tell me, where did you start? Where are you now? And how did you get there? [00:00:51] John Humphrey: Okay. Started 20 years ago, originally from New York. I'm out here in California, 20 years, April, this past April is 20 years. My wife and I had been out here in California. Yes. We came out of California to create fame and fortune and become entrepreneurs. And that's where our kind of our journey started. Fast forward 20 years, you know, I've been in business with like one of my best friends that I met out here california when we first got out here, Jerry Conti and we've owned three or four different companies together on our latest company right now, LinxSTR, is revolutionizing the new IoT Helium platform that's being launched worldwide. And that's our latest play right now. And it's a, it's super exciting what we're into. [00:01:35] Sam Wilson: Can you, can you break this down for us? You may have used a bunch of words that if entrepreneurs like me just said, what did he just say? Helium IoT LinxSTR and my eyes glaze over. Break it down for us. [00:01:48] John Humphrey: I'm going to tell you all about it. It's actually, it's, it's a, it's a pretty cool concept. It's right around a little bit over two years ago, a cryptocurrency called Helium, the actual cryptocurrency said, okay, listen, we're going to create our own new cryptocurrency. [00:02:01] John Humphrey: You know, it's right now there's 8,000 cryptocurrencies in the world that most people will never hear, right? This one said, we're going to do something different. We are going to create the world's biggest IoT network and IoT stands for internet of things. Now, if you don't know what that is, I didn't know what the hell it was when we got this whole thing rolling. [00:02:20] John Humphrey: But basically it's a network that is an, basically an outdoor network of the internet. I'm just going to give you the plain, plain simple truth. So like I was sharing with you saying like inside our house, we have, you know, we have our wifi in the house, right? But we go outside, we're using cellular data, but there are billions of new devices that are being developed right now for everything from, from a motor scooters to the cameras that go around your property to temperature monitor, to, to leak detection, to all sorts of things that can happen with a property. These, all these little devices need to be hooked up into the internet, but typically they're not going to hook up into the wifi 'cause a lot of these devices are actually outside the property. So how did they hook up? Well, they're not going to hook up to cellular because it's too expensive and they're not going to the satellite cause that's even more expensive. So over the last number of years, there's been a, there's been a network called the IoT network. [00:03:18] John Humphrey: Now the IoT network has been around in major cities for a very, very long time. So if you ever gone to, you know, swipe your credit card and a parking meter downtown. Well, your information is getting beamed into this outdoor internet network called the IoT network. If you've ever gone to a, like the, like the line motor scooters that you know, the little electric scooters you see everywhere downtown, how does that all operate? [00:03:44] John Humphrey: That's an IoT device. So now what's happening is that not only are more and more IoT devices becoming made. Right now in the next three years, 75 billion new devices are going to need a place to hook up to the internet. I mean, this is everything what's going to happen. Almost a hundred percent of our life in three years right now, it's going to be all interconnected. [00:04:05] John Humphrey: It's really crazy. So what do they do? Well, they created this, so Helium said we're going to create the world's first 100% connected worldwide network and how they're going to do it is not by building it centrally. They're going to decentralize the internet. So now this isn't the size of an actual box, but it's about the size of what's called, what's called a Helium hotspot. [00:04:28] John Humphrey: Okay. So imagine having this in your house and all this little device does is it looks for other IoT devices and all it does is it beacons and witnesses, it just basically shares the network to create a network. So think of it this way. If Netflix got started today, they would send you a little device that you would plug into your router. [00:04:50] John Humphrey: This is what they would do. And they would say, great, we'll send you the device. And when your neighbor orders, a TV show or a movie, and the movie has to go through all these devices to get to your neighbor. And this little movie goes over your box to get to your neighbor's box. We're going to pay you every time that that happens. [00:05:09] John Humphrey: This is a peer to peer network that is being built. This is really what. You know, Web 3.0 really is, it's called decentralized the network, having the people own the network. So Helium is known as the people's network, and this is what's getting built right now. So super exciting. There's about, like I said, there was about 700,000 of those little devices worldwide in 5,800 cities and 200,000 of them are in the United States. [00:05:36] John Humphrey: So there are quite a number, but people are saying, well, you know, how many will it take? It'll take about 2 to 3 million devices to completely blanket the United States. So think about this in a few years, and this is, this is kind of crazy me and you won't be talking over cellular towers anymore. Our phone, our actual communication is going to be going box to box, to box, to box, to box, to get anywhere it needs to get. [00:06:02] John Humphrey: The entire world, this is where it's going to be happening. So Helium's going to be really the biggest data provider, you know, in, in the world in the next few years, this is what's happening. [00:06:13] Sam Wilson: That that is really amazing. I mean, this is, this is obviously you're, you're at the front of this, I guess. Tell us, give us the backstory on how you saw the opportunity here. I mean, was this what your background was in and, you know, are you a big tech guy? [00:06:28] John Humphrey: Nope, not a tech guy. I love tech, you know, I like to use tech, but I'm not in the weeds when it comes, I'm going electrical engineer or anything. I'm more of a user, right? So, so here's what happened. So my, my partner, Jerry, we've had a short-term vacation rental development company for many, many years. And we actually taught people how to convert large homes into luxury short-term rentals. And we did that in the arbitrage model where we're basically, we would go rent a giant house. I convert it. And then Castro, the property was amazing. I mean, one of my properties at Arizona, I was paying 10,500 a month rent, which was nuts. [00:07:05] John Humphrey: Right. But it was bringing in $35,000 a month and bookings. Super great business, but then 2020 happens and we all know what happened in March of 2020, we had the pandemic. And what people don't realize is in the month of April, Airbnb came out and said, listen, we know everybody's panicking with travel, so here's what we're going to do regardless of your cancellation policy with your host, if you want to go ahead and cancel, go ahead. And we'll give you 100% of your money back. Well, listen that was great for the traveler, but it sucked for us as the host. Jerry and I lost $600,000 in bookings in 30 days 'cause everybody was canceling and there was no recourse. And so that really scared us. And we said, whoa, listen, if we're really hooked into a big tech giant here, like Airbnb or BRBO and they do something like this, it could really kill your business. [00:07:58] John Humphrey: And so, Jerry decided, Hey, let's start a technology arm of our short-term vacation rental business, where people can create websites where they can book direct that we, we can, we can do pricing. We could do marketing, social media marketing, where people can go out and get their own bookings. So they can be empowered to have their own business, regardless of what happens if they got knocked off of Airbnb or knocked off of BRBO. [00:08:22] John Humphrey: And the same thing happens in marketing, right? People have a Facebook account and it gets shut down for some. All their marketing drives up. So we want it to do that for the STR world. So we're doing this for a little bit, and a friend, and we were looking for all tech to put into our homes and somebody said, Hey, you want to check this thing out? [00:08:40] John Humphrey: It's called Helium. We don't know what it was. And they said, well, listen, you can put a box, literally add this Helium hotspot to your short-term vacation rental properties. And you can earn crypto. You'll get rewarded in crypto currency. And we looked into, we said, wow, that's really amazing. We jumped on it. But then as soon as we jumped on it, we saw a whole bunch of pitfalls of why it wasn't going to work. [00:09:04] John Humphrey: And so one of the big reasons is, is that I show you this little box, right? This is the size of a Helium hotspot. You would get off the internet. It doesn't work and it reason it doesn't work is it's not powerful enough. So what we did was is we hired a guy from Motorola who took that thing apart. We deconstructed it and we built this kind of this, it looks like a utility box. [00:09:26] John Humphrey: I don't have one right here with me at the office, but it's a, it's a small utility box, probably the size of a toaster. And then we put an external antenna on the roof and we did this whole thing. So we basically souped up the Helium hotspot. We contracted with a manufacturer and we created our own customized box. [00:09:44] John Humphrey: And by doing that, we built a better mousetrap. And then all of a sudden this was doing even bigger than our short term vacation rental businesses as people kept calling us saying, I want one of your boxes. I have a property, I'm a property management company. I have a thousand properties. I want to make crypto, like I could add this on and just make residual money without doing anything I'm in. And that's kind of how LinkxSTR got started six months ago. [00:10:07] Sam Wilson: Six months ago. That's rapid growth. Tell me, tell me about the opportunity for commercial real estate investors. [00:10:14] John Humphrey: Yeah, this, this is what's amazing. If you have a property, if you're, if you have like a commercial building, if you have real estate residential, doesn't make a difference what it is is what we have done is we have created a software where we can literally predict how much cryptocurrency your location could mine, meaning how much it would get rewarded. So what we do is we invite people, you know, to get on our calendar. We will literally get on a zoom call with them and say, Hey, let's go over your 5 to 10 property that you have, or maybe it's even more. We'll analyze them in real time. And then they'll make a decision on where they want to put hotspots because the one pitfall that we did see, Sam, was that in the beginning, people were just buying hotspots, plugging them in, and then all of a sudden I'm seeing all over social media. [00:10:59] John Humphrey: This is a bunch of BS. Like I'm not making any money. This is what they're still like, well, what is this? And it's because they were literally taken a little box like this, plugging it into their router box, stick it next to a window on the first floor of their apartment. And the signal was going nowhere, absolutely nowhere. [00:11:16] John Humphrey: And so that's what we found, so for real estate professionals, commercial real estate people at buildings, we can put an antenna on the roof and you could just be earning residual crypto rewards. I mean, to me, it's a no-brainer for people. It really is. [00:11:31] Sam Wilson: I mean, what's, what's the break, even on that, I mean, is this something where, Hey, it's a thousand bucks for the box, you know, in three years you break even on it. [00:11:39] Sam Wilson: I mean, it's, it sounds like I'm just going to be in being forthright here. So don't, let me offend you. Obviously, you've got a, you guys are going somewhere with, and you've got traction with it, so. I'm just the naysayer, trying to clarify. [00:11:50] John Humphrey: This is great. I'll tell you the costs right now or how it works. Real simple. So the box is $29.97. So if you bought a retail box about three grand, now people say, okay, now listen, you can, I will tell you I'll be the first one to tell you. You can go onto eBay right now and buy a box for $500. You can, but it's going to look like this, right? And it ain't going to work. [00:12:12] John Humphrey: I'm just telling you it's a $500 waste of money. So, what we did is we, we have a premier piece of tech that we put together for somebody. Now, here's the reason we did it. It's not for how much it costs, but how much it's going to make. So let's say for example, you put our box out there and it gives you five tokens a month, meaning five HNT. [00:12:32] John Humphrey: Yeah, it's rewarded for you basically do enough and the box is sitting here and it's just pinging in witnessing. So over the course of a year, that 60 tokens in five years, that'd be 300 tokens that you would have in your crypto wallet worth, whatever the value HNT is going to be. Now, I will tell you, in five years, HNT is supposed to be around $250 a token, and let's just make it a round number. [00:12:54] John Humphrey: Let's just say it's 300 a token. And you've got 300 tokens, you know, that's not bad. That is not a bad if you, you know, if you do, if you could do the math on that, that's pretty good money. That's 90 grand on a $3,000 one-time investment with no maintenance fee, no anything. It costs about $5 a year in electricity to run the box. [00:13:17] John Humphrey: So this is what people are looking at in terms of ROI is that I'm in it for more of the 10 year play. You know, Jerry and I want to mine a few million coins in a, in 10 years. Our goal is to put 20,000 hotspots out in the marketplace and that's a hundred million dollar business right there. I mean, it's going to be massive. [00:13:37] John Humphrey: So everybody that gets a Helium hotspot, you want to be thinking right now, just accumulating coins, because then when Helium goes to 500 or a thousand, maybe becomes a Bitcoin one day and goes to 10 or $20,000. You're going to be sitting on a fortune for a very, very minimal investment. [00:13:56] Sam Wilson: Tell me about this. You know, we're long in the RV resorts space. So talk to me about that application. [00:14:03] John Humphrey: Yeah. We're putting them everywhere. RV resorts are fantastic because there is an office there, right? That does have internet. And the reason I say internet is because the, the box needs to be powered by the ethernet right now, it's simply that it plugged into the ethernet port of your router box. [00:14:20] John Humphrey: It doesn't use data. It just uses the power. Now in the future, they're going to have other locations where it's going to be Siler and you don't have to plug it in, but RV resorts are great. And one of the reasons they're great is because you can put literally a 40 or 50 foot tower, like an antenna, like in the RV resort. And the higher, the intent is the more HNT, the more crypto rewards you're going to earn, because the more boxes it's going to reach. Everything is about height with us, everything. So the higher, you know, the higher, the relocation of your intended, the better. So RV resorts, we have put Helium hotspots and our RV resorts very good, because they can kind of make their own rules they don't have an HOA, they can just build some fricking tower there that we'll help install. And now they're just mining tons of crypto there. [00:15:05] Sam Wilson: What is your guys's angle? You know, I know you guys want to mine your own Helium, but what, or HNT I guess as you call it, maybe that's the short, short three letters for it, but what's your guys' angle other than selling the boxes, which is a one-time sale. I mean, maybe you're making some money on your box, but there's gotta be more to the business than that. [00:15:23] John Humphrey: Correct. So we're sharing. Every box that we put out there, we're sharing the HNT with that person. So we will get 50% of the HNT. They get 50% of the HNT, but we do everything. We do the shipping, we do installation. [00:15:37] John Humphrey: We do your hotspot maintenance, your crypto wallet. Everything is like, we do it all for you. And the reason we did that is we wanted to target real estate professionals that want to make the want to be in the money of just making money with their properties. And this is extra money for them, but let us handle the technology, the tech of this. We're not interested in people that want to tinker and you know, like that, isn't it. [00:16:02] John Humphrey: I come across those people saying, like they're going. I'm going to go build my own hotspot. I'm going to go do that. I said, listen, you go for it. You know, our goal is every box is out there. It's a long-term play for us that we want to earn HNT but then the second part of this play is, is that we're going to be creating a consulting division of LinxSTR that is going to be all about the devices. [00:16:23] John Humphrey: Cause this is the next phase of what's going to happen. There's going to be 75 billion new IoT devices that are going to be introduced into the world marketplace. So we're going to create a whole division. That's going to be creating devices, consulting with companies on how to get the data to their devices. All of those things is really the next play and that's going to be massive. That's gonna be massive. [00:16:46] Sam Wilson: The sales and the front end of these devices, that's really just the entry point for you guys into the market collecting HNT. [00:16:51] John Humphrey: And there's tons of hard costs in a tech company. So we don't, we're not making a fortune off of devices. We're really not. I mean, the whole point of this is the HNT and the consulting and how to use the data when the data comes up. [00:17:05] John Humphrey: And we, we actually was interested. We actually, we spoke to an IoT device manufacturer the other day and they, and it was this, they have hundreds of devices and they're the funniest devices you'll ever see. There are little devices, right? One of the ones and they were all designed for real estate, they're all designed for how to maintain your property remotely, how to, how to do everything from like a leak happening on your property or fire damage or, you know, anything even critters. [00:17:34] John Humphrey: So the funniest thing I saw was an IoT mousetrap that they have. So imagine you mentioned putting mousetraps out in your property, you got critters. And instead of hoping and praying that you're catching something, the device is actually an IoT device. So when something happens with the device, it'll alert. So you can put it out into your yard and it's on the network. And as soon as something catches, you actually get notification on your phone. [00:17:59] Sam Wilson: That's funny. Yeah. There's endless applications like, oh, your applications right now. You, if you're in Memphis, it would be rats, not mice. So yeah, I know, right? Everybody on the show just took their headphones out and went, oh, that's disgusting. Yeah. Well, welcome to the Delta. Yeah. So that's, it'd be funny. Yeah. He caught a rat, great. Okay. Tell me about saturation. Like how far apart do these have to be? Is there, you know, is it one per neighborhood? Is it one per house? [00:18:26] John Humphrey: Great, great question. The hotspots, ideally to be a thousand feet. So, if you had a building, like you had an apartment complex or something, or a fourplex, you would only put one hotspot there. [00:18:37] John Humphrey: So that's it. Now this is the, also the issue that's been happening because when the whole network got started, it's completely unregulated at this point. So people were just buying things and what happened is there'll be too many hotspots in a concentrated location. So there's a network called the IoT Helium network. [00:18:56] John Humphrey: And it'll tell you the great thing about it is that every hotspot that is live on the network, you can see what that hotspot is doing in real time. So there's actually a worldwide map and the way that they break it down is if I was to take this hotspot and have it go live, it would show up in what's called a green hexagon. [00:19:16] John Humphrey: That's what it looks like on the map. It looks like there's a green hexagon that is over my house here, but the hexagon is literally two square miles. And this, this shows up as one hotspot within the green hexagon. Now the ideal thing, and the reason they do that is because ideally you do not want to have more than six Helium hotspots in one hexagon. [00:19:41] John Humphrey: You get past six, then it's kind of like a pizza eating itself. There's only so much that's going to be, it's like a pizza and more and more people coming in. If the pizza is the same size, now that's this type of hotspot. Right? The one that we have, which is built ours is going to go outside of our hexes. [00:19:58] John Humphrey: And they're going to go up to 200 miles away. They're going to network with other boxes. So it's going to go super far, the signal like you don't realize how far the signal can go. It goes really, really far. So that's why ours will outperform anything on the market. [00:20:13] Sam Wilson: Wow, John, this is fascinating. Thanks for taking the time to break down this opportunity. We have here with our properties. That's, that is the either. There's always something new to learn in this. This is certainly something new to me. So I appreciate you taking the time to share it with us. If our listeners want to get in touch with you or learn more about you and what you guys are doing, how do they do that? [00:20:31] John Humphrey: Simple. I just, if you have some properties, you want us to do an analysis of your property. You want to learn about a little bit more what we're doing. I'd say just book some time directly on my calendar. I always kind of do this. I leave this open ended with everybody it's simple. It's iotjohn, iotjohn.com. And then you can book some time to get into valuations done of your properties and see if you're sitting on a crypto gold mine somewhere. [00:20:54] Sam Wilson: That's cool, John, thank you so much for your time today. I do appreciate it. [00:20:57] John Humphrey: Thanks so much, Sam, be well.
In this episode of Cyber Security Inside, Camille and Tom take a dive into cloud security with Jo Peterson, Vice President Cloud & Security Services, Forbes Technology Council, CompTIA Advisory-Infrastructure. The conversation covers: - How the cloud has become a more integral part of businesses, and where we are headed with cloud. - What your responsibilities are for cloud security and the questions to ask when choosing a provider. - How artificial intelligence and the Internet of Things interact with cloud security. - What the biggest concerns are in cloud security and what experts are doing to make it more secure. ...and more. Don't miss it! We were honored to have Jo on the podcast, who has accomplished some amazing things this year! Check out her accolades: - Onalytica Who's Who in Cybersecurity https://onalytica.com/wp-content/uploads/2022/02/Whos-Who-in-Cybersecurity.pdf - Engati LinkedIn 30 Top Voices in Tech https://www.engati.com/blog/linkedin-top-voices-in-tech - Thinkers360 Top 150 Women B2B Leaders to Follow in 2022 https://www.thinkers360.com/150-women-b2b-thought-leaders-you-should-follow-in-2022/ - 2016-2022 CRN Women of the Channel Recipient https://www.crn.com/rankings-and-lists/wotc2022.htm - Onalytica Who's Who in the Cloud https://onalytica.com/blog/posts/whos-who-in-cloud/ The views and opinions expressed are those of the guests and author and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of Intel Corporation. Here are some key takeaways: - When you don't own the hardware you are using, what can you do to keep yourself secure? We are all sharing a lot of the same underlying infrastructure, and sharing information and data on the public cloud. Keeping it secure is very important. - Customers are concerned with outages and resiliency of cloud systems. And there are some things that customers can do. Having things like High Availability, housing workloads across multiple availability zones, supporting region routing, backing up data, encrypting data, and more! These are the top concerns of customers right now. - Often cloud breaches happen with unsecured assets because someone internally made a mistake somewhere. The Shared Responsibility Model needs to be flexible and apply to each cloud provider. And knowing your responsibility within that model is important. - Splitting up an application between on-prem and in a CSP sometimes depends on financial means. It is more costly to run something in the cloud because of bandwidth and latency. So for one application, some of the storage might be on-prem and some of the computing might be done in the cloud, with you traversing back and forth. - Splitting up presences across geographic locations is also smart. If you have a west coast presence, but there is an earthquake that damages your systems, having an east coast presence as well is useful. And you can balance the application with application load balancers in those different availability zones. - There are a lot of suggestions and how-tos for best practices and using availability zones. But it also takes some technical knowledge and practice on how to build a secure cloud environment. At the end of the day, you are building your own infrastructure. - Cloud has grown and changed a lot over time, and it is still growing and changing. Especially with work from home, how we connect to the cloud and use it has changed. Maybe it's time to do identity based, maybe the tech for VPNs still hold. We have to rethink who we are letting access data, and continually rethink as things change. - What advice does Jo Peterson have for people trying to select a cloud service provider partner? Know your inventory first, and know what you want to move to the cloud. Then look at what you have chosen and decide what specialization you might want to go with based on what you have. - When looking for a cloud service provider, it is important to know what you need and to find someone who specializes in that. If you are multinational, find someone who knows the regulations. If you are a beginner, find someone that can guide you and help you with what you need, specifically. - Artificial intelligence and the cloud are both increasing in use and they support each other. Businesses need both in the future, and they work together. With the Internet of Things, AI and the cloud will both be utilized. Some interesting quotes from today's episode: “Recently, one of the major cloud hyperscalers had an outage. They actually had a couple in a row. And cloud systems are expected to always be on and news like that makes the headlines. What I'm hearing customers talk about is maybe the need to rethink a strategy about having all their eggs in one basket.” - Jo Peterson “Have you secured your user end points? That translates into all end points. You might have the users squared away, but maybe you don't have your VM squared away. Maybe you don't have your server squared away.” - Jo Peterson “Wherever the disaster happens, it's still a disaster. So if you're running in a different availability zone, you're theoretically dealing with a whole other stack of infrastructure.” - Jo Peterson on how availability zones are useful protections from natural disasters to hackers “All of the hyperscalers do a really great job of helping to inform and educate potential clients. So every one of them has how-to guides. But at the end of the day, it's you building your infrastructure. So what I see happen in shops that don't have a lot of help, is they'll go to a managed service provider, a CSP, first to get that sort of architectural best practice from that company. And they'll learn as they go.” - Jo Peterson “Well, cloud is a teenager, and it's growing up. There's things that are happening as it grows up and matures. The world around it is changing and its world is changing. So there's this sort of dual effect.” - Jo Peterson “Current estimates expect today's $2.5 billion ML market (cloud ML market) to reach $13 billion by 2025. It's a pretty big increase, right? And Deloitte put out a 2020 study of AI that revealed that 83% of organizations expect AI to be critical to their business success in the next two years. So cloud drives measurable benefits for AI programs.” - Jo Peterson “I think we're just going to be seeing more AI and cloud together, like peanut butter and jelly.” - Jo Peterson “I think we're going to see, particularly in certain verticals, like retail, healthcare… We'll see edge cloud deployments. And he who has the data and he who uses the data is going to be first. You're going to see market disruption. You're going to see first to market advantage by companies that are using that edge, that customer data most creatively.” - Jo Peterson

This episode of Over the Edge features an interview between Matt Trifiro and David Knight, President & CEO of Terbine, a data exchange for the physical world that has built a highly scalable system enabling wider use of data to inform and radically reshape many industries and everyday life. David is a serial entrepreneur, angel investor, filmmaker, and experienced startup executive with a history of innovation and market development. He has a background in core technologies, including multi-spectral sensing and communications, messaging, enterprise software and distributed systems. David has founded, co-founded and held leadership roles in tech companies with exits including two IPOs, two M&A buyouts, and two recession-triggered meltdowns. He now leads Terbine, a big data & AI startup.In this episode, David talks about his journey from working on ham radios to being a pioneer in the early days of digital entertainment. He also discusses his involvement in the beginning of online storage, helping to launch the private space race, and dedicating himself to dealing with, analyzing, and processing the overwhelming amount of data that comes out of everyday life. David explains how all of this led to founding Terbine, and how the company has partnered with the City of Las Vegas to help propel the world to prosper through insight, communication, and emerging technologies. ---------Key Quotes:“They really want to make Vegas a place where they work on smart city technology and next generation communications. And, they're really investing in it, but more importantly, they're inviting startups and large companies to work together. And, so if you're thinking of a city as a platform, which is not a normal way to look at a city, we are really trying to help the city itself become smart and also sustainable. You don't necessarily think of Las Vegas as a sustainable city, but if you think about it with things like the water shortage is coming up, it's a place that really needs to be sustainable.”“The most interesting applications, which absolutely are going to be dependent on very rapid edge processing with low latency communications, are going to be in things that move. And, it could be a human moving. It could be commercial things. The first applications that we're actually looking at, and we will be doing very soon are in the commercial world.”“What we're trying to do is say, look, we've already said, we're going to take the pulse of the earth, so now we're going to wire the physical environment into the digital twin and then collectively you can now navigate around it.”“The more we can help the cities learn about the past, the present, and then extrapolate into the future, the better. So, it's not just the hedge funds that are going to make future bets. It'll be the cities themselves.”---------Show Timestamps:(02:45) Getting into technology(03:30) Arc to current role(05:55) Working with new computing technology (02:43) Early days of email / Start of Click to Send(08:30) XPrize Competition development and execution(19:17) What is Terbine?(21:10) Breaking apart the problem space(22:10) Looking at issues in 3D(25:15) Breaking down data silos(26:10) Dealing with fear and greed(27:06) Motto - ‘Take the pulse of the earth'(29:30) There are sensors everywhere(32:30) Mobile Edge Computing(36:28) Processing data and storage(41:48) Compression algorithms(43:15) Sharing data(44:40) Solving business and technology problems(45:30) Tech Startups in Las Vegas(49:30) Las Vegas Smart City Showcase(52:00) Terbine and Las Vegas partnership(53:30) Las Vegas as a privately funded smart city(54:30) How Las Vegas conducts business(56:30) Vegas loop(57:30) Brightline rail from Las Vegas to California(58:52) Uses for Terbine platform(01:03:30) Using Drones(01:05:30) Digital Twin implementation and uses--------Sponsor:Over the Edge is brought to you by Dell Technologies to unlock the potential of your infrastructure with edge solutions.

Ending World Hunger by 2030 is one of the UN's Key Sustainable Development Goals, announced in 2015. We're now half way to the final milepost, but estimates still put the number of people in the world who are suffering from hunger and malnutrition at around 811 million, more than 9% of the world's population. So how can tech help? In this episode, we'll be meeting some of the amazing people at the cutting edge of ending world hunger through the use of technology.A view from above:Satellite technology could be a game-changer in connecting remote rural communities to the outside world, helping small-scale farmers produce better yields, and allowing them to more effectively ship and sell their produce. Mark Jarman, CEO of Colombia-based satellite project development firm AgriTierra, shares his thoughts on how the emergence of small, cheap constellations of satellites allows constant, real-time monitoring of land and economic conditions in ways which weren't possible just five years ago - even to those with only the bare minimum of connectivity.Uniting the public sector and private business:Speaking of bare-minimum of connectivity, one of the most important ways in which rural economies can grow and become more efficient and productive is to get access to communications technology, a aunting task when they don't necessarily have the financial ability or education and training to do so. Combating that is Isabelle Mauro, Head of Information, Communications & Technology (ICT) Industries at the World Economic Forum. The WEF is the world body bringing together the public and private sectors, and has been pushing for greater co-operation and work on lifting developing communities out of hunger and poverty. Isabelle believes that the practical means to connect communities exist: rather, the challenge is to provide a financial incentive for companies and Governments to reach out to poorer areas where the business case for connection might not be so obvious.IoT in the soil:One of the firms leading the charge to bring rural communities into the digital age is Hewlett Packard Enterprise. Brian Tippens is their Head of sustainability, and has been working closely with WEF, and partners around the world such as Purdue University, to bring HPE's experience in data and connectivity to the farm, with solutions as diverse as networked soil-sample and moisture analysis units, which can tell farmers exactly what the conditions are like in any part of their farm (or in the community as a whole) at any one time. Their end goal? For the field to act almost as a data centre in itself, storing and analysing data at source, and in real-time.Meat the Future:But what about advances away from the farm, or produce supply chain? The world has an insatiable appetite for meat, and one which is only growing as people are lifted out of poverty. That puts a huge strain on farmland and the planet due to the intensive effort required to raise livestock, and the poullution that causes. However, with the advent of STEM cell technology and improved compute power and data analysis, another option is on the horizon: Cultured or lab-grown meat. Daan Leuning is Co-Founder and CTO at Meatable, a company which is scaling up the production of lab-grown beef and bacon to commercial levels, using cutting edge technology. They believe that creating cruelty-free meat with low-space and energy requirements could revolutionise the way we eat, as well as eventually providing cheap, nutritious food to large parts of the world.So whether we're looking down from space or down into a petri-dish, there's plenty of exciting developments which could help end world hunger by 2030. Will it be enough? Well, that depends on the appetite of those in power to make a change.Key takeaways: Within the last five years, satellite and connected communications technology has become more available, low-cost, and low-latency - to the point where it can now help poor farmers in remote areas. The best way to lift the world out of hunger is through public-private partnerships which provide funding and a business case to spread this technology through the developing world. Within a decade, non-traditional vertical and cultured farming could revolutionise the way we consume food, as well as drastically reducing the environmental impact of storing, shipping and producing what we eat.

In part 1 of this 2-hour interview, "Conspiracies in the Cleaning Industry with Ed Selkow", Ed shared an incredible 50-year career in our industry. He shares so many great stories and lessons that will help you in your business. Ed also shared some incredible criminal stories that I called "conspiracies" that are a must listen! In this episode, we dive into the second half our interview. Ed shares the past, present, and future of the cleaning industry. Do you want to grow with the industry? There are predictions and recommendations that Ed suggests. Here's a few notes from the interview."You've got to be honing your skills, expanding on what you know how to do.""Where there are a whole bunch of companies that are missing, that's an opportunity for me."Why are so many new cleaning companies starting out post pandemic. "Desperation drives a lot of people to start cleaning businesses because it costs so little to start. It's possible to grow a cleaning company with no money, but it's also possible to walk from NYC to LA!""Commercial real estate is the mother's milk of the industry." Ed explains that if no developmental growth is happening, cleaners are just trading accounts around as there is a finite amount of buildings to clean.Find the country economic people for networking to learn when and where new buildings are coming. Ed believes this is a huge opportunity and better than the Chamber of Commerce.The disinfection revenue explosion will normalize like previous fads.Ed gets into the intersection of "Big Data" and "The Internet of Things" (sensors), for computer models of building traffic to determine how much cleaning has to happen. This could become cleaning-on-demand.The increase in technology will drive cleaning prices down over time. This is what happens with every industry that technology improves. Robotics are one of these advances. For example, there are robots that can empty deskside trash cans. Couple this with cleaning-on-demand technology, and cleaning revenues will likely go down. Ed is predicting this so we can get ahead of it.Winning cleaning companies will be the ones that combine of technology and open systems for cleaning.Ed highly recommends that we all understand Seth Godin's book, "Tribes". Those that understand this mindset will survive the future.Ed highly recommends that we, as building contractors, link up with the BSCAI (Building Services Contractors Association International) as our professional trade association. They are dedicated to the services versus the manufacturers (ISSA). They were also influential to getting the cleaning industry labeled as "essential" to get us back to work during the pandemic.You can find Ed Selkow at Janitorial Growth Solutions and on multiple social media outlets.Check out my interview with the CBF Founder, entitled "A Buffalo Charges the Storm with Debbie Sardone". Debbie is offering free consultations to listeners of this show through the Smart Cleaning School Resources Page to see if CBF could be the right solution for you.

So the biggest takeaway is that we need to simplify not only how we're communicating with the customers, but we need to do our homework to better understand their ecosystem and the vendors that they're working with. That's not just technology vendors, but their entire ecosystem. Because, if we don't understand their industry and what's going on with their day to day work, then that technology is something that over-complicates some of the things that they're working on. They don't want to hear about some gizmo or IoT. They want you to help solve problems.”“We as an industry have to get away from the technology jargon and really start getting closer to our customers, applying it to their use cases, and speaking in their language. We continue to have a massive gap there. That's a big area that we help our customers with today.”“We are looking at patterns. We're applying machine learning and artificial intelligence. And, we're working to bring together the human and the digital world, as we continue to automate businesses and operations. This is the evolution that we're in right now.”---------Show Timestamps:(02:10) Stephanie's Background(04:03) Branching out into other Technologies(07:13) Benefits of IoT and Machine to Machine Communication(13:10) Compass' Client Base and Needs(14:10) Biggest Trends Not Obvious to Others (16:36) The Metaverse isn't a Brand New Took(17:25) Getting Closer to Understanding, Supporting, and Communicating with the Customer(18:55) The Business Edge Report Results and Findings(23:49) Getting Smart with Value Added Reseller Relationships(26:30) Efforts in Edge Computing(28:52) Examples of Real-time Data Intelligence (31:26) The Importance of Security on the Edge(35:50) Hybrid Approach to Edge and Cloud Computing(37:55) Simplicity of Implementing Plug and Play Solutions(38:60) Seamless Exchange of IoT Data On a Global Scale(43:40) Having a Strategic Perspective and Plan (45:36) Advice for Women in Technology --------Sponsor:Over the Edge is brought to you by Dell Technologies to unlock the potential of your infrastructure with edge solutions.

Written by Pippa Boothman Narrated by Gayle Crew CoreNet Global's the LEADER magazine, October 2021 Most commercial real estate companies still use manual methods to collect and confirm the data they rely on to manage building temperature, layout, and maintenance schedules. Until recently, the promise of smart office technology was only achievable for large real estate companies with budgets of many millions of dollars. The Internet of Things (whereby a network of physical devices, appliances and software connect and exchange data to support automation) has been prohibitively complex and expensive for most building owners and facility managers. Installing sensors to collect data was costly and time-consuming.
