Beschreibung

Wienke will tell about how a community driven Internet of Things data network conquered the world in just 6 months. A grass root initiative growing out to a global movement.

Wienke Giezeman is the originator of The Things Network, the first crowdsourced free and open 'internet of things' platform. In Amsterdam, the network was set up in six weeks time and this made it one of the first real smart cities.

Wienke previously worked at KPN and XS4ALL. He started his first company in 2012 when he founded WappZapp, an on-demand video platform, similar to Netflix. In the end of 2014 the company was acquired by Sanoma.
Wienke has always been a great advocate of free and open internet and therefore was one of the founders of Startups for Netneutrality. This group mobilized European startups to protest against the upcoming plans of the European Parliament to restrict Internet freedom. By disseminating information about the importance of net neutrality and by offering a petition they were able to influence the decision of the European Parliament.
Besides The Things Network, he is the founder and CEO of The Smiths, an app agency, and mentor at Rockstart Accelerator.

What's the Academy about?

The Things Network is based on LORA (Long Range Radio), which offers a much wider range with an average of 10 kilometers over wifi, but does not require a subscription as opposed to mobile internet - and so is ideal for devices that always need connection, but do not use a lot of data. Wienke is on a mission to provide the world a free and open Internet of Things Network.
