  1. Hi Alexandra,

    glad that you put my book in you list of IoT references! There is a companion Web site for the book (www.gsiot.info), maybe this would be a better link.

    As for other startups, I suggest two additions:

    – Our spin-off Yaler (www.yaler.net), an “Infrastructure as a Service” cloud startup which solves the “firewall and NAT” problem of embedded devices that are used as Web services.

    – A non-related company: http://www.koubachi.com that solves the “how can I prevent my plants from becoming parched” problem.

    Thanks and best regards
