The internet of things today is entirely dominated by vendor silos, from locked-down hardware and firmware to opaque communication protocols, big privacy-invading data stores in the cloud under vendor control, and only very selective APIs, usually cloud-only. Can we do better?

In this BoF, we'll have an open discussion about IoT projects and products that follow the Linux spirit of openness and commons-based development instead, and what it would take to make them more widespread. If you work on such project, please come by and give us a short summary. (If you send me a brief e-mail before the event, I'd appreciate it as it makes my job easier, and I'll add you here). If you would like to use such independent, "Indie IoT" solutions instead, come by and tell what you'd like to use.
