We are so excited about what’s brewing at this year’s World Tea Expo! (Sorry, we couldn’t help it.) It’s no duh that the buzzwords for the tea biz these days are all about the M-word. More businesses, more drinkers, more products, more emporiums. So, of course, we are all about keeping up! Expect much more at the Expo: more educational content and speakers, more products at the expo hall with extended hours, and more networking opps at a new reception on the show floor. Mmmmm.

Watching heavy equipment do its job well can be a joy. Especially when your business has laid out a serious chunk of change for that equipment. And when that dozer or boom lift or combine wins an award for value retention, well then, good on you for being a savvy buyer. This year’s winners of EquipmentWatch’s Highest Retained Value Awards have been named and top prizes go to Caterpillar and John Deere— tied with four honors, each. How did the other brands do? Check it out!

If these guys were a band, we bet they’d do a rockin’ cover of “You light up my life.” Energy Times notes three musicians who, in their spare time, happen to run three of America’s leading electric power companies: Nick Atkins at American Electric Power, headquartered in Columbus, Ohio; Elliot Mainzer at Bonneville Power Administration out of Portland, Oregon; and Terry Bassham at Kansas City Power & Light in Missouri. While their energy is focused on the grid, all the men say music is key when they need to recharge!

Look! Up in the air! It’s a bird, it’s a plane, it’s… a drone. Certainly no news flash but there’s lots to think about. More drones mean more accidents and threats— people hurt in close encounters; drones getting in the way of aircraft, including emergency airlifts and commercial flights; and drones used as attack weapons. These things have many security experts and watchdogs worried. Read more about why from our team at the IoT Institute!

Register now—there’s an early bird special. (See, smarter already.)

Get your IoT skills on, people! There are more jobs than ever out there in the Internet-of-Things world. A tip of the hat, as always, to our IoT Institute for keeping an eye on important trends. Like self-driving car engineering and wireless protocols like Bluetooth. Or what about natural language processing? Say, what? Alexa… take me to the IoTi’s great slideshow for more info!
