Tinkerers and the
Internet of Things (IoT)

Gartner tells us that it will be "inventors, tinkerers, and entrepreneurs who create and manufacture products" for the Internet of Things (IoT).

For the next three years, it will be small, agile, hungry start-ups - the kind of people who brought us the shareware revolution in the 1980s that was eventually embraced by the entire software industry.
