Once again, I’ve been attempting to single-handedly deny service to Twitter at ProductTank London.  Last week we had Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino, Claire Rowland and Alex Jones all talking to us about the Internet of Things and how it affects product management.  Take a look at the recap I wrote over on Mind the Product’s blog.

If you’ve not heard of ProductTank, it’s a monthly meetup for product people to get together to hear a few talks and, more importantly, to have a drink and socialise with people who understand the difference between product and project management….  There are several ProductTanks going in different parts of the UK, Europe and the US, so there’s probably one near you.  And if not, why not start one?

You can read the recap of the talks on product management and the Internet of Things over on mindtheproduct.com.
