Stacey Higginbotham has covered technology since 2001. In my years covering tech I became more fascinated by the stuff were were able to do on vast computing networks and ever speedier mobile and wireline broadband networks. Finally all of the elements of the technology I’ve covered in more than a decade have culminated in this moment and we’re creating the internet of things.



No matter what you call it, we’re at a pivotal moment in the evolution of human creativity, business creation and productivity gains. We could see the gains we make in these next few years help us conserve resources and let us lead safer and healthier lives or we could open the door to a dystopian society where our every thought is monitored and our every utterance is effectively for sale. I hope to explore all of these issues, the people who will make it possible and the devices that will lead us there in the IoT Podcast. I hope you will join me.

needs a lot of work

I love Stacy’s expertise and professionalism but this podcast drives me insane. Every time it starts, she’s “super-excited” for no particular reason. Her sidekick Kevin is grossly under-informed and comes across as a clueless nerd. It took both of them 2 years to figure out the real name of the Amazon Echo, referring to it instead as “Madame A” so they wouldn’t have to say “Alexa” (which would set off listener devices). Dumb. They’re supposed to know this stuff. Then a good half hour is wasted every episode as Stacy lets corporate PR people drone on and on over the phone giving them free, uncriticized publicity. Yawn. But even worse, the audio makes me literally nauseous since they seem to be running some kind of software algorithm that removes all the silence and pauses, making everyone sound like they’re overdosing on Adderall.

IOT isn't my thing, but this is some informative stuff

I don't care much about IOT stuff, but I enjoy how Miss Stacy and Mr Kevin present the information with "real world" application. Not just "look at this cool thing to put in your house that you can talk to." Nicely done, team. Also, I love the intro/outro music. ((fist bump))

Podcaster obcessed with Madam A

It's good an informative but tiring as a third or more of the show is spent talking about Madam A. Please move on.
