Exciting things are happening at the MTBC, and I wanted to give you a glance at what you can expect in the coming months. North Texas is home to a dynamic environment ideal for growing businesses and innovating new technology. We are seeing many of our traditional technology companies prosper; however, we are also seeing new technology creators implementing differentiated technology. While we continue to value the traditional tech companies that are the foundation of our membership, we have come to realize that our reach should extend beyond our traditional membership.

INNOVATION


Forget robots — We'll soon be fusing technology with living matter
Wired
The future has a funny way of sneaking up on you. You don't notice it until you're soaking in it. That was the feeling at O'Reilly's Solid Conference. For the first time, the venerable tech publisher held an event dedicated the way software and hardware are coming together in devices that don't involve a typical computer screen. The gadgetry on display was so complex and so diverse — spanning everything from smart trash cans to airborne wind turbines — that even hardcore techies marveled at how far this world has already come.

Why gadgets in the Internet of Things must be programmed to die
Wired
Everyone's talking about the Internet of Things. They talk about smart light bulbs programmed to glow purple when it rains, smoke detectors that do email alerts and routers that network our houses.

Educating the big data generation
CNNMoney
It would be tough to find a better illustration of the acute need for big-data skills today than the situation KeyCorp has been experiencing. Over the past year or so, big-data positions there have been taking twice as long to fill as other professional roles have, said Amy Brady, the company's chief information officer — 100 to 120 days on average, rather than 55 to 60.

CNNMoney
For years, data brokers have been collecting and selling billions of pieces of your personal information — from your income to your shopping habits to your medical ailments. Now, federal regulators say it's time you have more control over what's collected and whether it will be used at all.

Meaningful use deadlines clash with software best practices
InformationWeek
Hospitals find themselves implementing new releases of EHR software, certified to 2014 standards, almost as soon as vendors release certified versions. That's almost like implementing Windows 8 immediately after release.

Microsoft cybersecurity exec declares the password dead
Birmingham Business Journal
The password is dead. That's the message from John Proctor, Microsoft's vice president of global cybersecurity, who wrote a blog post on the subject this week. In the wake of what feels like attack after attack on big companies' systems, and the revelations of the Heartbleed vulnerabilities, most of us are suffering from breach fatigue.

Smartphones accounted for 7 of 8 devices shipped in the U.S. during the first quarter, with Apple and Samsung leading the way, research says. Americans have moved past the feature phone.

Wireless charging of phones from across the room? The tech inches closer
Singularity Hub
If you park an electric car over a metal plate or deposit a mobile phone on a charging mat, you can recharge the batteries, no plugs required. Wireless energy transmission has been possible since Thomas Edison's time, and in the last several years, especially — as robots gain mobility and electric vehicles accrue consumer demand — we've heard regular promises that the days of tangled power cords are numbered.
