Distributed applications and "IoT"

Something I read in an online trade magazine about IoT not getting
past the stage of "smart sensing".  Maybe a little bit of
preprocessing or filtering, but it makes sense that most applications
do not do much with the data apart from sending it on for central

What I'm starting to feel is that the basic problem is the
communication network.  Ethernet might not be the right thing, as it
practically requires a Linux host, and for WiFi it becomes even more

It's time to figure out how to handle this better.  Make a go-to
solution for a multidrop RS485 bus.  A good architecture seems to be
to have a Linux host be master, so it can also bridge to Ethernet.
