Topic 1 - Introductions: Farah - VC turned Entrepreneur - Also involved with SolidFire early? Kilton - IoT for the City of San Francisco and IoT program director for Northeastern University

Topic 2 - What can you tell us about the new venture?
Topic 3 - Before we dig into the platform, what is your definition of edge? Do you see it as Stacey did in her article as multiple layers of edge (device, gateway, processing cluster, cloud)
Topic 4 - What problem are you trying to solve? Explain what you mean by running applications at the data source and solving the problem of latency on round trips?
Topic 5 - OK, with the basics out of the way… Do you envision this as a platform? If so, what kind of platform and what applications (or micro services) would be a good fit? Are some/all of this open source? Where is the secret sauce (proprietary mesh framework between edge and cloud?)
Topic 6 - Lastly, what security measures do we have to worry about and what challenges do customers face in this space at present?
