For those who enjoy reading unusual stories about people who are doing things that are silly, crazy and just plain odd, GoWeirdFacts is a one-stop weird facts blog where they can spend hours browsing through the impressive number of stories that probably won't end up in a typical newspaper. To make it as easy as possible for people to find interesting stories to read, the home page is devoted to featuring a variety of short and weird stories about several different unusual topics.

For example, one section of the new site includes many interesting facts about animals. One of the posts that has been getting a lot of attention from readers is about 60-year-old male tortoise named Susi who fell in love with a lilac-colored slipper. According to the story, something about the purple slipper caught Susi's eye 30 years ago, and for the next three decades they were never apart. Recently, when Susi's owner took him to a safari park, he met an 80-year-old female tortoise, and left the slipper behind.

Another section that readers are already spending a lot of time visiting focuses on unusual accidents. One story describes a weird accident that has happened to a couple in Indiana—in fact, it has taken place 11 times. Over the past 30 decades, the story notes, the McCall's home in Indianapolis has been hit by a vehicle 11 times. Fortunately, no one was hurt in late December, 2013, when a car last crashed into the family's dining room. As the article notes, the McCall family has applied for a stop sign to be installed near their home; in the meantime, they are hoping that a twelfth car will never hit the house.

GoWeirdFacts also features stories about funny people who are doing things that many others will never do. A recent blog post tells the story about Daniel Suelo, an American who lives in the Utah wilderness with no money at all. The 52-year-old retiree has lived there for over 13 years with no cash and no identification of any kind.

Anybody who would like to learn more about GoWeirdFacts is welcome to visit the new blog at any time; there, they can be entertained while reading about the many unusual things that are taking place in the world. They can also visit and "like" the blog's Facebook page.

Enterprise IT has been in the era of Hybrid Cloud for some time now. But it seems most conversations about Hybrid are focused on integrating AWS, Microsoft Azure, or Google ECM into existing on-premises systems. Where is all the Private Cloud? What do technology providers need to do to make their offerings more compelling? How should enterprise IT executives and buyers define their focus, needs, and roadmap, and communicate that clearly to the providers?
The many IoT deployments around the world are busy integrating smart devices and sensors into their enterprise IT infrastructures.

Whether your IoT service is connecting cars, homes, appliances, wearable, cameras or other devices, one question hangs in the balance – how do you actually make money from this service? The ability to turn your IoT service into profit requires the ability to create a monetization strategy that is flexible, scalable and working for you in real-time. It must be a transparent, smoothly implemented strategy that all stakeholders – from customers to the board – will be able to understand and comprehe...
More and more brands have jumped on the IoT bandwagon. We have an excess of wearables – activity trackers, smartwatches, smart glasses and sneakers, and more that track seemingly endless datapoints. However, most consumers have no idea what “IoT” means. Creating more wearables that track data shouldn't be the aim of brands; delivering meaningful, tangible relevance to their users should be. We're in a period in which the IoT pendulum is still swinging. Initially, it swung toward "smart for smart...
Complete Internet of Things (IoT) embedded device security is not just about the device but involves the entire product’s identity, data and control integrity, and services traversing the cloud. A device can no longer be looked at as an island; it is a part of a system. In fact, given the cross-domain interactions enabled by IoT it could be a part of many systems. Also, depending on where the device is deployed, for example, in the office building versus a factory floor or oil field, security ha...

But until recently, no one knew how to listen. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dan Gettens, Chief Research Officer at OnProcess, discussed recent research by Massachusetts Institute of Technology and OnProcess Technology, where MIT created a new, breakthrough analytics model for s...
In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
