The Internet of Things – It’s Everywhere
Sue Kayton

These days you can go online to adjust your hearing aid, open your garage door, pay touchlessly at the grocery store, use your cell phone as the remote control for your TV set, have a video doorbell alert, and much more.  Is it safe?   Would it help you in your daily life?  Or is is unnecessarily complicating?

Join Sue Kayton in a roundtable discussion.  If you have internet-connected gizmos, please plan to explain to the group what you have, and how you use it.

Are there specific questions you want answered?  Email them ahead of time.
