You may remember that you are on the smart object directorate (https://www.ietf.org/iesg/directorate/smart-object.html). It was created at the time when smart energy topic was hot in the industry, and the individuals from the directorate helped bring about many useful things, from good discussions to reviews of the documents that were being done at the time (like Fred’s RFC 6272). Thank you!

But the world moves forward. Today the Internet of Things is a very active development area in the industry, as well as a key IETF standards topic. Work has moved from a general interest to doing specific things in various IETF areas. We are now setting up a new directorate to look after this area, as a help to the ADs and chairs who are managing work in this area. At the same time, I am closing this directorate. I know many of you are very active in this field; if you are interested in contributing to the Internet of Things directorate, please contact Brian.

Thanks again,

Jari Arkko
