Second - how did I manage to wait exactly one year between blogposts?
I’ve written extensively about Bangle.js/NodeWatch over on the NearForm blog (with more coming) and I won’t repeat that content here:
- Bangle.js is the first hackable open source JS and TensorFlow-driven smartwatch!
- Bangle.js – Open Source creating opportunities for Open Health wearables with JS & TensorFlow
- All of the Bangle.js excitement including new community OSS apps already
But I’d just like to re-iterate my belief that we are heading towards an inflection point with privacy, data ownership, platforms, APIs, Open Source and walled gardens. At some point, convenience will no longer reign, as more and more people become disgusted with where we have ended up. And it’s up to everyone who believes in Open Source, Open Platforms, Open Standards, Privacy, and owning your own data, to provide a reasonable alternative for those people.
