As Dom recently mentioned, we are not abandoning WoT, on the contrary, we are currently planning our next move after our graduation in the next few months (most likely in the entrepreneurial world, so if you have plans/offers/funding/ideas, we’re all ears and evaluating how we can best leverage our WoT know how). But until then, we’re both just damn busy writing our dissertation 🙁 and preparing WoT 2011 workshop 🙂
The plans for the Hackathon are almost finalized and we’re glad to announce we have a bunch of partners that support us. First we’d love to thank the fine folks from GAFFTA for providing us the venue for the hackathon on the 11th June. Thanks also to ThingWorx and Sen.se for sponsoring food and drinks and providing access and support to their software and thanks to ioBridge and Oracle Labs for lending hardware for the hackathon. Also thanks to Oracle Labs for offering us a free Sun SPOT Kit for the best paper award winner of WoT 2011.
In summary this is going to be the biggest Web of Things meeting so far in our history, and we’re looking forward to bring WoT startups, researchers, designers, and hackers together in such an inspiring location as San Francisco. So what are you waiting for to join us (at least the hackathon for the drinks and pizzas, it’s free and it’s gonna be amazing)?
We’ll keep you updated as we finalize the program! And we’ll even do our best to keep you wot-tertained over this hot summer ahead!
