Jason Hope has become well known online by writing about what he calls The Internet of Things. The modern technology that allows devices that you normally would not think go together to actually connect. Devices such as computers and tablets, kitchen appliances, security systems and street lights and more information click here.
Why is this important? That is because the ability to connect these devices with each other will cut down on time and energy spent and decrease waste. Jason Hope thinks this is incredibly important as he believes it is going to change completely how we do business today.
He also thinks things are going to start to change in a big way when major corporations really realize how investing in The Internet of Things can change everything they do. Smaller companies will then rush to keep up, and the eventual outcome will be that just about every device ever made will be able to be connected with every other one.
The end result of this is that personal computers, phones and tablets will be used for everything. From changing the channels on the TV and dimming the lights, to locking up when you leave the house or turning the oven on for dinner while you are still at work and what Jason knows.
Jason Hope’s predictions about this also reach to things like public transportation, where train maintenance and the changing of bus routes to avoid congested or dangerous parts of a route have already been affected by The Internet of Things. He believes this will continue until public transportation becomes so popular, it will positively affect things like traffic congestion and pollution.
Hope got into this way of thinking after graduating from Arizona State University with a Master’s degree in Business Administration. Soon after, he established Jawa, a mobile communications company that got him firmly entrenched in the technology industry and thinking like a “futurist” — someone who attempts to predict how society will change in the future and resume him.
In the years since Hope became a futurist, he has continued to predict technology, and now The Internet of Things, is going to be the driving force behind how much of mankind will eventually live their daily lives and Jason’s lacrosse camp.
