IBM's Meshverse Mandate & the Coming Boom

IBM has been mentioned frequently here because they are broadly and deeply involved in meshverse technologies. Their recent Smarter Planet initiative is providing a much needed, practical focus on how meshverse technologies are key to dealing with critical problems the planet is facing. You may have seen the TV ads but if not YouTube has them. For the most part these ads do an excellent job of distilling very complex issues into comprehensible stories. For an insider perspective, see this interview with IBM execs. IBM is also connecting the technology with current needs for change. I am in full agreement with their idea that a mandate for change is a mandate for smart.  We clearly need  A Smarter(Virtual) World and the notion of an instrumented, intelligent planet is what I was getting at in Sensing the Coming Boom. A mandate for change is a mandate to upgrade.
