The Internet of Things Plan To Make Libraries and Museums Awesomer. Two large banners greet patrons when they walk into Orlando Public Library.
Amid posters about the library’s family-friendly services and upcoming programming, the banners urge patrons to do something a bit uncharacteristic for a nearly 100-year-old institution: download an iBeacon app. In November, the library implemented BluuBeam, an Orlando-based service that uses iBeacon technology to send location-triggered information to patrons. Visitors who download the app get an alert about library offers and events. So, for example, if you’re searching the third floor stacks for a Julia Child cookbook, you’ll receive a message about the library’s Cuisine Corner program that features cooking demos by local chefs. Debbie Moss, assistant director of the Orange County Library System in Orlando, says the library wanted an innovative way to inform patrons about services that matched their interests.

Tom Grinsted, product manger: core mobile applications,Guardian News and Media Keep it simple: For me, keeping it simple is about getting to market early and then iterating – the highest-risk projects are those when you don't have visibility of how successful your work is.
It means that you can't adapt to users and you can't easily evolve your product. So being simple is about getting out there, seeing how it works – then iterating.
