NATURALLY, DANNY SEO is exploring expansion opportunities including international licensing with foreign publishers, a companion television show of the same name hosted by Danny, and unique corporate co-marketing relationships with some of the most prominent national brands.

The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, a...

This last trend is the IoT stack, which involves a new shift in the separation of what stuff happe...
