About Braco's Silent Gaze
When attending a live-gazing session, a potential interaction takes place between Braco and his visitors, which has been reported to better many people's lives. Countless visitors, including doctors and scientists, have called Braco's gift "extraordinary". Since 1998, over 90 documentary films have been produced in Europe and the U.S. to detail personal accounts of transformation that have resulted from Braco's loving gaze.
Harmonizing body, mind and spirit, Braco's gift is viewed by many as being profoundly uplifting to individuals and communities wishing for change and presenting them a new foundation for peace and unity.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it’s important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. “Fly two mistakes high” is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee...
