I remember my first teenage job, an electrician's helper. Not exactly an manufacturing job but I did work assembly-line like pulling wires in hundred of identical floor plan new construction apartments. I had heard this would be something that I would not want to do the rest of my life, as well, but looking back it wasn't too bad. Where's my time machine?

There's already movement afoot to managing the IoT communication among manufacturing machines. I discovered while reporting from the O'reilly Solid conference a while back that MTConnect, a nonproprietary, open-source communications standard, was being established for manufacturing equipment and devices.  The protocol gives a standard for manufacturing devices to coordinate their production efforts.  

A manufacturing day can lift the exposure for these kinds of developments and give a focus for IoT annucnements that will certainly increase by the day!

On the other hand, it may still be possible to have a services business without big data. Not so for manufacturing.

...but services? Nope. I'm in services so I envy my friends in the manufacturing industry. It's so much easier to count things over there.
