Silicon Valley Startup Arable Takes the Internet of Things Into the Wild
Featuring FoodBytes! alumni Arable
Last Wednesday, I found myself hiking around in the hills above Silicon Valley, tramping down dried grasses and keeping an eye out for rattlesnakes, as warned. I was trailing Adam Wolf and Nona Chiariello as they hunted for a good spot in the Jasper Ridge Biological Preserve, 1200 acres of chaparral, redwood forest, and grassland owned by Stanford University, where Chiariello serves as a staff scientist. Their mission: to find the perfect location in which to pound in a metal post and mount the latest gadget to join the Internet of Things: Wolf’s Pulsepod.
