IBM Industry Summit: The Podcast Recap

leave a comment »

Though my partner-in-crime Scott Laningham wasn’t able to join me live and in person during my recent trip to Barcelona, he was certainly there in spirit, and he was also gracious enough to join me for a recap discussion earlier this week for developerWorks.

In the 13-minute recap, Scott and I walked through some highlights of the trip and the first-ever IBM Industry Summit — and even sneaked in a few holiday shopping tidbits to boot.

Enjoy our short walk down IBM Industry Summit memory lane, and for those of you in the U.S., I hope you enjoy a restful and thankful long holiday weekend.

You can find the podcast here.

IBM Industry Summit: Smarter City Operations Center With Mike Kehoe

with one comment

I did some more roaming around the IBM Industry Summit Expo this past Thursday afternoon just as the action there started to wind down, and I seguewayed from trying to better understand smarter video analytics to that of smarter city operations.

If you’ve seen the IBM TV commercials, you’ve seen our experts talk about the opportunities to make cities smarter around the world.

Well, IBM Smarter City expert, Mike Kehoe, provides a 5-minute video helicopter ride in the video below over what a typical smarter cities operation might look like.

…Oh yeah, and for the five minutes I interviewed Mike, he made me the honorary mayor of Barcelona!

Check out Mike’s excellent flyover below:
