IoT Has An East Coast Cluster. Boston is the Hub.

One of our favorite refrains at INEX is: New leadership is required, and it will come from anywhere.

Not a fair or accurate representation of all of them. All of us.

Exhibit 1: John Guydon, CEO of The Lassy Project. The Lassy Project enables parents and caregivers to create ‘villages’ or splinter social networks that can be quickly activated, mobilized and coordinated with law enforcement entities in the event a child goes missing.
