We are on a mission to build a global open crowdsourced Internet of Things data network.
We want to promote the idea of an open sensor network, whilst understanding how to make a sustainable model.
This may be a hybrid of commercial and open, or a community fund model. For all of these we need applications to give people something to get behind.
