lowish-hype overview of competing IOT platforms - just ignore part whede Node Red is annointed "The One" - only a month old and written to standpoint of API-consumers / devs 

Semmelheck seems convinced making the API angle even easier is important - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FrqzuL9mcKA https://github.com/jheising/HAPI

not sure i fully agree, devs (firmware/hardware/UI) might feel hamstrung by an overly-simplified toolkit when tasked with making "magic" devices that "just work" , Apple being the extremist example, having the entire bastard-child-of-NeXTSTeP to remix at will to come up with their products. 

can't argue with the python-levels-of-simplicity aims even if hack-approachability is a niche factor (OpenMoko/N900 market-failures and sheer # of consumers voting (percieved simplicity, friend-network-effects, aren't militant about "open") over and over for proprietary hardware and websites.
