Thanks Rob, very enjoyable course.

Iron

Thank you, Jon, Rob,

Thanks Jon, Rob, Digikey et.tal.

Iron

Great series.

Thank you Jon and company.

Iron

Thank you everyone. I hope you enjoyed it.

I have been informed that each day's chat pages will still work going forward so i will try to check in from time to time to see if there are any follow up questions.

 

Thank you, have a good weekend.   -- Jon

Yes, we must be careful as to what conspiracies we believe. Take everything with a grain of salt from the conspiracy angle. But, follow the money. Also, look for independent sources for corroboration of facts.

Iron

I tunes is an example of a cloud server we use.

So is drop box, instant messengers, and webinars.

Iron

I don't see too many conspiracies -they're too difficult to manage. A healthy dose of scepticism on the altruistic claims of corporations is required.

Iron

Another possible use of a cloud based system would be a button that Rob could push that would give me an electric shock 1,000 miles away if I get off topic or start to ramble.....

 

We could call it   ShockJon.com

Iron

"Also hard to know the truth when a large corporation owns tv channels, magazines, radio stations, newspapers and is an ISP."

True, it seems competetion leads way to mergers and takeovers which lead to monopolies.

Hopefully, the free and unshackled exchange of information from reputable sources will help combat this.

 

But, then everyone thinks we are conspiracy theorists. Not everything is a conspiracy, but, conpiracies do happen.

 

 

Iron

Also hard to know the truth when a large corporation owns tv channels, magazines, radio stations, newspapers and is an ISP.

Iron

"Change of society is a tough issue..... free or reasonable access to information that is of a no private nature... like what is provided by librarys or regulatory angencies...general pubic informaton."

I agree. It's hard to know what is truth when everything we are told has a spin. As a result, mis information is a hard thing to combat.

 

Examples are when large companies spend money to propaget lies. Like the commercials that state 'the body can't tell the difference between High Fructose and sugar"


The taste buds can[t, but the liver takes on 6 times as much toxins for every molecule of high fructose.

Be aware who benefits from the information that is being disseminated.

 

 

 

Iron

Hope you have fun in MH.

Iron

Need cameras in pantry and refrigerator doors that capture a snapshot when opened. These could be uploaded so I could look at what is in there on a smart phone and decide if I need to stop at a store.

Maybe a sensor that tells me when the front door is opened so I know the who/when of comings and goings. Could do this for pet doors and add some controls.

Need a sensor in the iron so I can assure my wife when we are halfway to the airport.

 

Iron

I can be reached at  jongabay@hotmail.com -- I will try to respond in a timely fashion

 

Put CEC as the subject line so I don't delete it as spam.

 

Also, for anyone in the new england area, I am playing tonight in Portsmouth new hampshire at a club called the blue mermaid. If you are in the area - stop by.

 

 

Iron

Yes, I too worrry about privacy. I have nothing to hide but I don't want to broadcast to the world every opinion and thought.

Kids growing up today have no real understanding of this. When they take a picture on their cell phone, GPS coordinates are encoded into the pixels. This is just one example.

I worry, who is watching the watchers.

 

Iron

If an intruder or criminal is on site, then anything is possible

Iron

Answer to question on older style pots lines.

 

With an older stule POTS line, a caller calling into a remote location can issue a security code to identify themselves. The remote location can then hang up and call them back.

 

Caller ID can be spoofed so that is not entirely reliable. But, to hack into a Pots network when a remote location has initiated a call is a lot harder to do than to reroute and re broadcast an internet data stream.

 

Iron

excellent jongabay...that's the implication in today's technology...

redundant is an excellent way to preserve the data without interruption but that's costly, maybe in another form...

Redundancy for cloud services is a good point. There will be geographically hit areas affected by storms etc. The ability for a redundant server in a nearby and unaffected area may be able to keep srvices alive if there is not oversubscription of communications lines. Having electricity helps too.

 

Iron

Sustainability sounds good to us. Cloud is good to decentralize risk of data loss but privacy is a big question.

Iron

I don't know how it might change what FEMA does but Google has been providing a great service for locating/contacting family during disasters.

Could be expanded to a place where needs are recorded so FEMA can show up with the right stuff.

Iron

Jon, I know you're busy (a'la Jim Croce, bless his memory) but are you available via e-mail or web site for future discussion about any of these automation issues? Very good class, BTW.

Twitter and new social media is helping to organize groups with common interest. It can create unrest, and it can also solve problems.

 

Any tool can be used for good or bad. It's our decisions how to use technology.

Iron

that's another week informations we owe from digi-key...once again , thanks and happy weekend to all

Thanks for the lectures Jon.

Iron
Thanks Jon and Rob. Been having problems signing in today. Caught the last few slides. Enjoyed this last week of presentations. Have a great Memorial Day weekend!
Iron

Jon, great job ... the week seemed to fly by ... (relativity I suppose) ... I'm glad you are socially and environmentally aware and share your concerns ... we need more of that in the engineering community

A step back to the past is a good thought but not feasible for many. We should preserve older techniques and wisdom. We may be able to bring it into the future in a more efficient way.

 

Iron

i do appreciated the whole things we have in the presentation throug sir jon...

excellent...

Change of society is a tough issue..... free or reasonable access to information that is of a no private nature... like what is provided by librarys or regulatory angencies...general pubic informaton.

Iron

Thanks Jon for exellent week of presentations.

Iron

Thank you Jon for a week of information.

Iron

thanks sir jon and sir rob for this presentation

Thank you, everybody!!   :)  Enjoy your weekend!!

Sustainability is key. I agree. I am working on a sustainable organic farming technique now.

 

Iron

Thank you Rob, Design News and Digikey 

Iron

Thank you so much for this series!

Iron

going back what we have in the past so that bad behaviour be limited...

civil unrest has been created and organized on twitter

Great presentation, thanks very much

Iron

Thank you for the lecture series Jon

Iron

Thanks Jon - very interesting discussion.

Iron

that's look like we need to go with sustainability, rob

Here's a question from Jon:

How can civic and community cloud services be used to change
society and how can global cloud services overcome bad behavior from large
and monopolistic companies?

Blogger

right, i agree with sir jon. no one can live now without technology because everybody are now relying on an automated devices and just one click. so, what happen, everybody become LAZY.

Jon, create a foodopedia and get sued...

Iron

Jon, but you created a pump that will remove water vapor from the air and might cause water damage..

we are now on slide 20

Is Orwell out there...

Iron

right kdhartford, nowadays, all of us are dependent now on the latest trends of technology

It will be similar to gps chips mandated in cell phones and black boxes in cars. First, it is for convenience and then the government will decide that we all need internal, trackable ID chips.

 

Iron

i think that's common and always include in the design in today's generation in engineering practice

To Late Jon, we already are too dependent on technology...just ask my bored kids!

Iron

@gwp2 - or if you are not consenting to a monitoring implant...

Iron

While there are many good parts of this type of tech but the bad side may be you have your health insurance premium go up or be cancelled because you have eatten a piece bacon.

 

Iron

did teh ... ended ?  

Iron

We're now on slide 19

Blogger

I agree that there are all kinds of privacy issues with implanting tracking devices on people. 

Iron

in today's technology, there's nothing is impossible...

now in slide 18

We're now on slide 18

Blogger

slide 17 is another example as mentioned referring to cloud services...

sounds nasty... let's stick an RFID chip in granma...

Iron

that's true, wherever you go, you can monitor and access. and that is cloud server...

 

We're now on slide 17

Hello from Milwaukee!

Iron

We're now on slide 16

Blogger

Cloud servers from sources including Amazon have redundant sites around the country.  Businesses hit by Hurricaine Sandy were out for weeks without power.  Remote cloud servers are a much better option.

Iron

Yahoo has web hosting service, too; which by far is nothing close to any cloud services

Iron

We're now on slide 15

Blogger

It would take a lot of convncing for me to put my trade secrets etc under someone elses control not matter what security plans are in place.

Iron

Amazon's cloud service is pretty good. You have full ssh access to it!

Iron

Itunes and amazon have cloud serves...

Iron

We're now on slide 14

Blogger

The question was cloud services not specifically computing

Iron

We're now on slide 13

Blogger

@npitech - cloud stroage and cloud computing are different services...

Iron

We're now on slide 12

Blogger

put some code on my server that would allow the firewall bypass... sounds like a HUGE security issue...

Iron

my hobby organization is getting terabytes of cloud storage from godaddy

Iron

Alaskaman66 thats a good point I wonder if that information will be made available?

Iron

We're now on slide 11

Blogger

POTS vs cloud service: It will be instructive to examine the system failures in Moore Okl after the EF5 tornado took out all the above ground infrastructure. Did the wired POTS lines survive? Will business have no connectivity thru the cloud for many weeks?

go daddy is not really a cloud computing service... it's more of a webhosting, registrar, etc...

Iron

Cloud service -- Amazon

 

Iron

What is the business model for free cloud services?  If we are not paying money, then they are getting data.

Iron

We're now on slide 10

Blogger

Here's a question from Jon:

What popular cloud service does almost everyone already know
about and possibly use?

Blogger

You need a physical connection to access what's on a POTS system.

Iron

circuit switched is harder to hack than packet switched

Iron

We're now on slide 8

Blogger

Question from Jon:

 How can older style pots line connections provide a layer of
security that modern remote access controls can't?

Blogger

liability issues? e.g. central monitoring service may include insurance...

Iron

We're now on slide 7

Blogger

We're now on slide 6

Blogger

We're now on slide 5

Also sensors for flooding basements, etc
