But it is also the design strategy that implies a certain programming paradigm, which leads to particularly brittle designs that often work only by chance. I'm talking about sequential programming based on blocking.
Blocking occurs any time you wait explicitly

The Internet of Things promises to enable a lot of, well, things. From smart homes to smart cities, and everything in between, tech enthusiasts are well acquainted with the potential of a world populated by connected devices.
Silk Labs, a startup headed by former Mozilla CTO Andreas Gal, believes the key to unlocking that potential
