  • [Editor's Note: We are cross-posting this blog post from Leslie Daigle at TechArk related to our ongoing joint work on Measuring Internet Health.]I’d like to pick your brain for just a little bit…The Internet has been measured and analyzed since the first connection was made between networks.

  • The Internet of Things (IoT) is a buzzword around the Internet industry and the broader technology and innovation business. We often hear questions about what the IETF is doing in relation to IoT and in this short post I'd like to highlight some of the relevant sessions scheduled during the upcoming IETF 96 meeting in Berlin.Before talking about Berlin though, I'll highlight a couple of recent IETF Journal articles that provide some background on IETF activity related to IoT. In "Internet of Things: Standards and Guidance from the IETF" Ari Keränen and Carsten Bormann provide some background...
