Internet & Networking Cisco and a group of leading tech companies have formed an industry alliance that promotes the Internet Protocol (IP) for interconnecting millions of embedded devices such as thermometers and light switches, forming an "Internet of Things". Many OSNews readers should be familiar with the technical basis of the alliance: embedded open source developer Adam Dunkels' lightweight uIP TCP/IP stack from the Contiki operating system. Nice to see that open source OSes besides Linux and BSD also have a major impact on the technology industry.

Your article says "Cisco IP Alliance", but the original one states: "A group of leading technology vendors that include Cisco and Sun Microsystems as well as end users have formed the IP for Smart Objects (IPSO) Alliance"

Cisco, Sun and many others are part of the alliance, it's not a Cisco IP Alliance
