Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine.

The Optimization and Integration De Facto Business Standard

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 07/20/2014 - 20:00
A newly established firm sent out some basic information collateral to introduce itself this summer – and a new type of business model would seem to be emerging.
