IMG_8004 2Five years after the 2012 Open Internet of Things Definition event , we invited the London Internet of Things community to work together on framing a more actionnable set of tools around good design in connected products.

On June 16th 2017 over 60 participants from across the UK & Europe were invited to start writing a certification mark. We worked over a day, hosted by Alasdair Davies of the London Zoo and collaboratively edited a document (archive) which we consider a first draft.

Fox Williams lawyers Rosie Burbidge and Josey Bright were on site that day and will be helping support the mark as the language around it is finalised.
