I thik that these are astute observations.
I really enjoyed the RIPE79 (Rotterdam) IoT hackathon.

I think that there are interesting operational things that RIPE IoT WG could
have deeper converations about.  There will be a grandchild-of-HOMENET effo=
at the IETF that might get called SNAC.  It would be interesting to me to do
some kind of *interop* testing of IoT systems and ISP systems.

This kind of promotion of new open source systems and
(standards) is really important to me as well.
