Being a keynote speaker…. I have had so many sessions through my life but never been a keynote speaker. I must say it is with great honour.
More info on the conference gogo6live conference
The conference was very interesting and my keynote slides are on slideshare
I love the platform meetup.com it’s really getting the right people to the right spot at the right time.
As a engaged person I love talking to other engaging people and the meetups I’ve been to and the one’s I have organised is just about that. we have so many ways of communication in these days but the meeting between people are still the best way to ”get things done” and inspire each other. I would have loved to be able to participate in all at the same time being allower the world at the same time.
If you havent registered yet do it now on meetup.com and find an interesting topic and join an evening meeting on any topic.

Been using my Prius Ev plug-in since December and it getting good results. I’m using 0,3 litre / 10 kilometre petrol and 335 Wh / 10 kilometre gives me a total cost in swedish kr of 5,04 kr. The trick of being able to charge is of course one of the major issues.
This is the way to charge at IKEA uppsala.
Contact me if you need a GSM connected electricitymeter to measure all the electricity you charge. (The extra grey box on the charging cable)
Being at the Advanced Energy Conference 2013. I started to use the term chattering things or chatty things this is a very good abstract view of whats happening in the Internet of Things world.
The billion devices that is to be connected will in classical way be connected to private clouds which is just somewhat better than the old legacy, proprietary protocols. We are getting an exploding number of slightly different web api’s. Creating new web mashup services will therefor never happen since you need to support so many protocols.
The solution is to leverage the instant message paradigm and the XMPP.org standard. To be used by all things letting them chat with each other. A sensor can be friend with an actuator regardless of its origin or business domain. A humidity sensor in an alarm system could then easily be connected to the ventilation system.
When these chattering things are available in an interoperable way there truly is a possibility for real smart energy services to happen without the need of adding more hardware. You just let the sensor doing a friend request to the energy service. The just let them start chitchatting.
Had a fantastic meeting with my teacher Karl-Olof Elmsjö from 7th grade. He gave me much of my interest and curiosity towards technology. We talked for hours around old technology and I must share this fantastic smart home history. The house is controlled via phone dial pads. When dialling different numbers the garage-door opens and lights are turned on and of via a phone switch board in the cellar. Karl made this true in is own homes in the 1970’s.
And still the main achievement in smart homes are the smart plug for controlling lamps, http://www.vattenfall.se/sv/smartplug.htm
