Anyone who has been following the Github group may have noticed a new report has popped up, cross-talk. After several days of discussion, I'm happy to reveal what cross-talk is, how it affects The Thing System, and what the road map for its existence is.

The purpose of cross-talk is to bridge different networks and gateways together, allowing devices on one network to talk and connect with devices on another network.

The initial networks that will be supported are z-wave, thought the open z-wave project, zigbee, and already documented TCP gateways.

The steward will become a TCP controller, and will have access to any devices cross-talk recognizes.

As the code develops, I'll release more details about the exact inner workings of Cross-talk, but feel free to ask questions now.

Is this thing dead?

The most common business model supporting the current generation of Internet of Things devices is the one time purchase of a thing. However these things then almost always rely on an cloud service to make it “smart,” and that appears unsustainable. The model has proved so fragile it may bring into doubt whether cloud architectures are the right fit for devices aimed towards mainstream consumers. #iot  

does the diskimage for the B+ model still exist somewhere?
Can't seem to get the B code running on the B+ model...
Any ideas about that?

Hey all. Is this awesome idea still in development and support? Just wondering.

Hey gang. I just ran across this system and just by reading the website, i like this a lot. Is there a way to run this on a debian 8 system on a PC platform. If so, could you please steer me to this information. Thanks Kilo

I've installed the pi image on my Revision 2 Raspberry Pi B. I can run
sudo /etc/init.d/stewart restart
and it says it ran fine, but the process doesn't actually start.
I have ran
sudo ./ from /home/pi/steward/steward to no avail.
I have even run
sudo node index.js
and although the process runs, there is no websever for me to connect to.
Nothing shows up in netstat, I can't connect to port 8888 or port 8887.

Does anyone have any ideas?

Hey all!

Has anyone had luck getting the steward working under Docker?

I've found a couple of Dockerfiles, but the steward seems to be expecting certain software and library versions (that I haven't figured out yet.)

I'm trying to build the steward from source. I can't get node-hid to work. It's required by the steward, and the steward works in the Raspberry Pi image that has been distributed, so how does node-hid not work?

Just a "Hello, world!" comment.  Finished watching Alasdair's presentation at 2015 and he was bang on.  Taking a look at The Thing System and hope to integrate it with my AEBL device as soon as possible and contribute back to the community, if possible.  :)
