The Internet of Things is a great tag open to a multitude of expansions.

Early Internet architects envisioned small numbers of nodes. The IPV4 address space is on the order of the population of the earth. Internet visionaries like Deborah Estrin and many others foresaw a use case for sensors and new things beyond toasters to connect to the Internet, resulting in IPV6 with 2**95, or about 30 octillion Internet-connected things per person.

Tonight's speaker, Surj Patel, is uniquely situated to give you a view of the Internet of Things. Patel studied at MIT's media lab and mediated discussions of Internet futures at Gigaom. Now he is CEO of an Internet of Things startup. Patel also created and helms the Portland Internet of Things meetup, destined to expand internationally.

Join us for an evening of networking and enlightenment. It is free.
