PULSE 2011 CALL FOR PAPERS OPENS SEPTEMBER 22, 2010
When I saw Tom Cross give a talk at Innovate 2010 in June, I was first struck with the nonchalance with which he spoke of the black market business of Internet data. I could not have been more intrigued if I were watching a movie adapted from a John Grisham novel. He seemed to have some emotional distance from what creeps most of us out about our mail. And I’m not even talking about email. I mean the good old-fashioned USPS mail. I KNOW I am not the only one who has worn out a few paper shredders thanks to Citibank, Chase, and the like.
The second thing that hijacked my thought train for more than a few moments was how network vulnerabilities are created for the explicit purpose of learning cyber criminal behavior. Like signing up for as much spam as you can. Sure it makes sense to me now. But I am still vaguely uncomfortable talking publicly about threat and attacks. It seems akin to Batman and the Joker building websites to promote their plans to outsmart each the other. What was I not getting? By now I was considering slipping quietly out of the room to silence the voice in my head saying I had been foolish, very, very foolish in my confidence as a clever and vigilant consumer of Internet Things.
Realizing that I had some mental catching up to do, I stayed for the lasting impression that could keep me awake at night: just how easy it is to steal digital data. As I struggled with the impartial irony of how enormous yet simple a cat and mouse game Web App security is, visions of Tom and Jerry danced in my boggled brain.

How much do you think the man who discovered Michigan J. Frog would have made if only he would sing for anyone else? Millions? Billions?
Perhaps we'll never know, but here is something we do know: there is an estimated $230 TRILLION dollars of capital assets deployed around the world that businesses depend on for real results. These devices are instrumented, interconnected and unlike Michigan J. Frog, talking to everyone all the time. But we’re not listening.
Why? Because most of them were designed with different technologies and speak different languages, and mostly we hear a bunch of noise. *croooooooaak*
To enable the interconnected infrastructures to communicate with each other so we can make sense out of what they are saying, we need to harness the power of software that can connect any type of device to any network.
When we do, then we can deliver the intelligence we expect from a smarter planet. Check out the following video for an automobile industry scenario.
In a couple of weeks, on 9/22, we will open Pulse 2011 Call for Speakers. Many of you have already been thinking about this for a while. We hope you consider sharing your expertise in connecting the system of systems with software that is smart AND secure by design. Here's how you can prepare and submit your papers after 9/22.
