The Internet of Things (IoT)
The Internet of Things was a busy space this week with some very interesting articles being published. The stories deal with topics as varied as Supply Chain Management, Healthcare, and Artificial Intelligence, reflecting the fact that IoT is impacting all kinds of industries, and not any one vertical in particular

Some great news about investments in renewable generation this week, and how utility companies are starting to wake to the importance of customer satisfaction, after being virtually customer hostile for a very long time

CleanTech (catch-all term so I can include other stories I liked!)
In a hugely publicised launch, Tesla CEO Elon Musk unveiled its much anticipated Model 3 car yesterday. The base model will sell for $35,000, go 215 miles on a full charge, and be capable of rreaching 60 miles an hour in under 6 seconds. Not too shabby!
