Real-time internet sensor monitoring, social media robots and a Biome crypto-coin by ari kalinowski

Saito is coordinating with data specialist Jaime Tanner, web developer Ana Nigma, and web developer David Castillo in order to create a website that tracks all Swale's data in real time.

The website may contain Saito's social media robots, which can scan the twittersphere around the barge and notify interested parties of Swale's location and on-going events.

Saito is also discussing the feasability of implementing a crypto coin with Pamela Pascual.
