There’s just too much happening in a country that seems to pack in an unbelievable 1.2 billion people and counting.

What does Audi and Gatehouse have to do with IoT?

What does Audi and Gatehouse have to do with IoT?

I am on the advisory board of GateHouse – an advanced specialty software solutions company that deals with mission critical operations ranging from industry to military, from optimizing and maximizing machinery to satellite communication.

I am thrilled to be on their board because I am all kicked up at the junction of business and technology, where Gatehouse plays. It’s at this intersection that the future lays. Future is exactly where I want to be.

And why am I so excited, you ask?

Computing is everywhere: Where are you?

Gatehouse IoT

The Internet knows it all – that’s where we are at the moment, thanks to the massive grid of Interconnected devices we use (and those we will).

But guess where we’ll be in the future? The Internet will “do it all” too.

Why Do Clever People Make Stupid Decisions?

Why Do Clever People Make Stupid Decisions

Really smart people often do dumb things, make boneheaded moves, and sometimes seem lost where simple common sense would suffice.

People buy high and sell low. They believe their horoscope. They figure it can’t happen to them. They bet it all on black because black is due. They supersize their fries and order the diet Coke. They talk on a cellphone while driving. They throw good money after bad. They bet that a financial bubble will never burst.

Professor Keith Stanovich even coined a name for it: dysrationalia.

In all my years of experience, I’ve met a lot of talented people. I’ve hobnobbed with entrepreneurs and made acquaintance with their big dreams — they do have big ambitions to conquer the big world out there.
