This Valentine's Day, Promise Your Love to Newtown

Sandy Hook Promise Launches #1MillionHearts for Newtown To Keep Sandy Hook Elementary and the Community of Newtown in Our Hearts this February 14th

NEWTOWN, Conn., Feb. 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Valentine's Day marks the two month anniversary of the tragic shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Newtown, CT that took the lives of 20 first graders and six educators.  As we celebrate those we love this year, Sandy Hook Promise is asking Americans to keep the community of Newtown in their hearts with its #1MillionHearts for Newtown campaign.

Sandy Hook Promise, the grassroots organization formed by Newtown friends and neighbors in the days following the tragedy, created #1MillionHearts for Newtown as a way to honor the lives lost, and help the community and nation to heal. The campaign allows participants to send virtual Valentines as a way of pledging their support.  Virtual Valentines can be shared from our website: 1MillionHearts.SandyHookPromise.org and on social media with the hashtag #1MillionHearts.

 "The whole town received an outpouring of love from people across the country and around the world immediately after the tragedy and it helped lift our spirits.  For Valentine's Day, a short two months later, it seemed natural to create a special way for Americans to continue channeling their love and support," said Lee Shull, co-founder of Sandy Hook Promise.  "By harnessing the power of social media, #1MillionHearts for Newtown enables those who have been so profoundly affected by this terrible event to continue pledging their support."

Beginning on Tuesday February 12th, people can send a virtual valentine by visiting the website 1MillionHearts.SandyHookPromise.org.  Valentines can be shared via Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest. Virtual valentines can also be shared via the Sandy Hook Promise Facebook and Twitter pages. To join the #1MillionHearts for Newtown campaign, please visit:

The challenges of aggregating data from consumer-oriented devices, such as wearable technologies and smart thermostats, are fairly well-understood. However, there are a new set of challenges for IoT devices that generate megabytes or gigabytes of data per second. Certainly, the infrastructure will have to change, as those volumes of data will likely overwhelm the available bandwidth for aggregating the data into a central repository. Ochandarena discusses a whole new way to think about your next...
