Take a moment to analyze how you use the internet. Would you say that the internet has changed your life? For better or worse, and we do believe it to be the former, the internet is here to stay and it is fundamentally evolving the way we live our lives. Jason Hope is a tech entrepreneur who has founded or funded 15 different companies, is going a step further with his faith in the internet. Dubbed the Internet of Things (IoT), Hope believes that the next revolution and evolution is upon us.
The Internet of Things is a term that references the networking of every day objects with the internet and, thus, our day to day lives. Hope’s greatest example is in the public transit system. He points to the concept of smart buses which automatically re-route thanks to GPS and data feeds. He also suggests that smart cars, self driving vehicles, could hugely reduce waste while all but eliminating traffic times. This Internet of Things expands even to the smallest of items: your refrigerator, your coffee maker, and more.
While it is easy to scoff at the concept of an automated world, Jason Hope doesn’t believe that it is the right track to take. Hope believes that the Internet of Things is the next great tech industry and he might just be right. Succeeding in the tech world is all about finding trends and forecasting them. Could Hope have the next big trend right here out in the open? and Jason’s lacrosse camp.
