Last Monday evening Patrick Fenner and I headed up to Preston to tell them a bit about the Internet of Things and what we've been doing in that area here at DoES Liverpool.

It was a pretty informal gathering, but full of interested and interesting people. Preston Geekup was a very welcoming event (with much home-made cake being shared!), and I can heartily recommend a visit if you're into techie things and nearby.

We spoke without slides - these slides will give you a flavour of what I talked about, and if you want any more then pre-order Designing the Internet of Things ;-) However, I said I'd share links to some of the things which came up either in my talk, or during the questions and discussion afterwards:

Connected Devices We Had With Us

Things I Mentioned

Finally, Liz, who asked us along in the first place, has collected together some of the discussion from the event in a Storify.
