At the this months meeting of OSIoT in Mt. View, I was asked to bring my micro device and Tower system to the meeting and talk about how they work and the IoT aspect. Well here are pictures of the unit so far. Will be connecting things up in the next few weeks so will be blogging about my progress.

Well it has been a while since my last post.  For good reason.  I wanted to hold off posting for some big accomplishments to talk about and set up the direction I will be going with this blog into the future.

FIRST BIG ACHIEVEMENT:

This will be my 100th post.  When I started this blog it was more an effort to explore ideas and concepts related to one small aspect of aquaponics and has now grown into a world wide effort from a number of neat people.

SECOND ACHIEVEMENT:

Have had my highest ever number of views on the blog and daily traffic has hit all time highs.

THIRD ACHIEVEMENT:

Will go over 50K view of the Internet-of-Farming this week!

IoT- Farming stat

LAST MAJOR ACCOMPLISHMENT IS:

Finishing of my    agponicMD (micro device).  I now have a fully functional aquaponic device that will allow me to test any and all scenarios that I want to.  This is a major big deal for me.   This allows me to actually achieve IoT on a personal level and be one of the first to reach a practical application that will help interest others in this area of farming and agriculture.  Without this blog and the comments from all you I would not have been able to get this far or learned so much.
