This week’s podcast has a bit of split personality with the first half of the show focused on a very consumer problem — how to move a smart home — and the second half discussing the industrial internet. Kevin is planning a move to Arizona, so we talk about his solar panels, his Nest and his Insteon gear, so we discuss what he’s going to take with him. We also discuss the new remote control/wall mount from Philips to control its Hue lights. Looks like people aren’t totally sold on the app experience.

In the second half, I chat with Michael Campbell, the CEO of MachineShop, a Boston startup that recently raised $3 million to help businesses turn their sensor data into a service accessible by an API. Campbell is high on the idea of creating economies around business data that will in turn lead to new services. Listen up.

Host: Stacey Higginbotham
Guests: Kevin Tofel and Michael Campbell, CEO of MachineShop.

  • Kevin is moving, guys. Here’s what he’s taking with him and why.
  • Large businesses have plenty of connected data in silos, so how to bring it together?
  • The coolest new Philips Hue device isn’t a light bulb.
  • What’s the deal with the new Industrial Internet Consortium announced last week?
