New year, new blog, and big news!

Happy 2016!

2015 was a year of stealthy engineering.  PowerGuard went from a lab prototype to a UL-listed, cloud-connected, machine-learning product that learns what your devices are supposed to do and tells you when they've gone astray.

Our product won't plug itself in (2017?) or run its own marketing, so my work-related resolution for 2016 is to make use of our blog, dear reader, and to keep you informed.

We've also got some big news that we've been waiting to share:

We're going to SXSW!  (Well, we aren't all going. Someone has to stay behind to keep the machines learning!)  Kevin will join John Halamka, CIO of Beth Israel Deaconess Medical Center, for Are Medical Devices and Systems Hackproof?  as part of the festival's IEEE Tech for Humanity series. 

Best wishes to all of you in 2016, and thanks in advance for reading!
