Inspired by: My dad, who put his entire career with the phone company and taught me why telecom was supposed to be managed by a public utility. I'm also inspired by the privacy law that started with the US Post Office and transferred to telecommunications in the 1930's. Now it's time to transfer to broadband and the IoT, so first we need to give Internet Protocol a better road to run on so that we can get back to the trust and quality we had before subscriber-based networks. Finally, I'm inspired by open development movements like Linux and distributed applications in cryptocurrency and artificial intelligence, and I know that when distributed apps get paired with distributed control networks that a global IoT specification will be upon us, and without winners and losers in the chip space.
