The blockchain begins finding its way in the enterprise
"In spite of the growing interest we have seen over the last 12-18 months, blockchain lacks some basic underlying system plumbing, the kind any platform needs to thrive in an enterprise setting. Granted, some companies and the open source community are recognizing this as an opportunity and trying to build it, but many challenges remain."

Xage introduces fingerprinting to protect industrial IoT devices
"You may be wondering where the blockchain comes into this, but imagine a honey pot of these fingerprints were stored in a conventional database. If that database were compromised, it would mean hackers could have access to a company’s entire store of fingerprints, completely neutering that idea. That’s where the blockchain comes in."

RAND’s blockchain challenges and opportunities
"No doubt because the BSI commissioned the Report, its focus is on standards. There is relatively little examination of the processing implications (including the speed and size of DLT/blockchains). The description: “the distributed nature of DLT/blockchain systems and the need for increased computing power could involve high energy consumption and associated costs” does not explore the issues in depth. Similarly, the merits of interworking DLT/blochchains could do with more depth."

Beyond Bitcoin: Oracle, IBM Prepare Blockchains for Industrial Use
"For OpenWorld, Oracle launched a Blockchain-as-a-Service, to be released in early 2018. The service will bundle the technology, make the system private, and guarantee compliance with all regulations, all of which have issues with getting enterprise companies on board, according to Frank Xiong, Oracle vice president of blockchain product development."

The Ever-Changing Roles of the Developer: How to Adapt and Thrive
"Just as the developer’s role is changing, so too have our ways of measuring not only our progress but also the effectiveness and performance of our code, tools and processes. This increased visibility is a good thing, overall. When it comes to measurement, there is a whole bunch of wrong ways to do it, among them measuring lines of code or the number of deploys. In fact, this very visibility, inherent to all of the data we now constantly measure, has been a great boon to DevOps."

What the Internet of Things will look like 10 years from now - by @tomraftery
"Connected Transportation will enable tremendous efficiencies, and a major increase in safety as we transition to predictive maintenance of transportation fleets, as vehicles become autonomous and have vehicle-to-vehicle communication protocols as the norm, and as insurance premiums start to favour autonomous driving modes (Tesla cars have 40% fewer crashes when in Autopilot mode according to the NHTSA)."

Brooklyn Microgrid: A Blockchain-based Platform for Locally Traded Electricity - by @kimberlymok
"Now, a New York-based startup is proposing an alternative: a small-scale, community microgrid that will allow local residents to buy and sell the energy they produce from rooftop solar power installations, using the existing energy infrastructure and the blockchain, the same technology that underpins open source, peer-to-peer cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin. Best of all, you don’t even need to have solar panels installed in order to participate."

Why The Blockchain, Not Bitcoin, Is What's Fascinating Builders
"The blockchain has not fully come into its full potential by any means. Most projects seem to be in early stages of beta testing and trials. Yet it's clear there are advances on an almost daily basis. It will be interesting to see the outcomes of the Open Ledger project and what the future holds for the blockchain, especially in newer applications like voting and healthcare. While the technology will progress quickly, it's not as clear that our political systems and everyday users will be able to keep up."
