SPICEWOOD, TX -- (Marketwired) -- 01/23/14 -- Spicewood Energy Management, LLC (SEM) would like to formally announce the closing of Spicewood Energy Fund II, LP (SEFII). At the request of several private partners, SEM formed and closed this year-end, IDC structured drilling fund on December 30, 2013.
SEFII was created to participate in non-operated oil and gas wells throughout Texas and Louisiana. All working interest will be in wells that are drilled in time to qualify for tax benefits in the 2013 calendar year. "We are still in full stride raising capital for Spicewood Energy Fund I, LP, but at the request of several private partners who were seeking quick year-end tax minimization strategies, we formed SEFII which will serve to provide them with an 80%-90% IDC tax write off for 2013 along with 15% tax free income," stated Waylan Johnson, President of SEM.
Mr. Johnson further stated, "It was quite encouraging when we went to the market place, utilizing some of our long standing relationships with other well-known oil and gas companies, the quality of drilling deals we were able to acquire for this fund. I believe we have created a nice diversified portfolio of oil and gas properties for our partners."
SEFII has allocated drilling funds in multiple prospects and expects to start reporting results within the next 60 days.

In his session at Internet of @ThingsExpo, Jim Scott, Director of Enterprise Strategy & Architecture at MapR Technologies, discussed single-value, geo-spatial, and log time series dat...

Scott Jenson leads a project called The Physical Web within the Chrome team at Google. Project members are working to take the scalability and openness of the web and use it to talk to the exponentially exploding range of smart devices. Nearly every company today working on the IoT comes up with the same basic solution: use my server and you'll be fine. But if we really believe there will be trillions of these devices, that just can't scale. We need a system that is open a scalable and by using ...

How do APIs and IoT relate? The answer is not as simple as merely adding an API on top of a dumb device, but rather about understanding the architectural patterns for implementing an IoT fabric. There are typically two or three trends: Exposing the device to a management framework Exposing that management framework to a business centric logic Exposing that business layer and data to end users. This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
