    Huh, I had no idea iAn (not to be confused with a future Apple product of the same name) had anything to do with TinyOS. I was just looking at that yesterday…!

    • Ian says:

      It may be wonderful now and highly polished, but the equipment I was dealing with was really poor. Now there are dozens of mote hardware designs, most open, and they seem much more robust. Especially an MSP430+CC1100 (or later) radio combo, super low power stuff.

  3. Really great interview! Always great to to here people talk about what they are working on.

  4. Markus Gritsch says:

    Just finished listening, really enjoyed it. I like your honest and humble nature. Did you finnish your dissertation or stopped working on it to do more interesting stuff?

    • Ian says:

      That particular dissertation project bombed terrifically for technical reasons, and my inability to articulate a contribution to knowledge that made anyone (including me) happy. It was cool tech though!

    …Finally had a chance to sit down and listen to this – great show! I didn’t realize the open motes and tinyos was your intro into real-world electronics – ouch!
