Scottsdale, Arizona-based tech entrepreneur Jason Hope has been closely monitoring the nascent Internet of Things (IoT) industry. Many companies, both startups and major corporations, are developing devices that can transmit information to other devices over the internet. This includes smart appliances, thermostats, light bulbs, autonomous cars, and more. It is estimated that there will be around 30 million devices making up the Internet of Things by 2020. People will be able to interact with IoT devices remotely such as turning on the heat in their home from their office or starting up the coffee maker while still laying in bed.
Beyond writing about the upcoming IoT revolution for publications like Huffpost, Jason Hope also wrote a book about it. His book is titled, “Understanding the Internet of Things Revolution: A Quick Guide for Thriving in the IoT Era”. In this book, he explains to be in clear language how IoT will impact everyone’s daily lives. He explains what the benefits of this revolution will be as well as the potential risks. The biggest danger, he says, is information and security breaches. He outlines ways of protecting yourself from these types of risks while still taking advantage of the benefits.

Another thing that Jason Hope has been paying a lot of attention to over the past several years is anti-aging efforts. As people age, they become more and more susceptible to age-related diseases such as dementia, cancer, high blood pressure, cardiovascular disease, and Type 2 Diabetes. There are researchers seeking to ways to slow down or even halt the aging process and prevent diseases like these from occurring. One of the organizations involved in this effort is the SENS Foundation. This is a California-based nonprofit dedicated to using biotechnology in order to improve all of human life.
To support this organization and their goal Jason Hope provided it with a $500,000 donation in December 2010. He presented this donation during an event called “Breakthrough Philanthropy” that took place at the Palace of Fine Arts in San Francisco. He has since made additional donations and has supported their outreach efforts to make people aware of what the SENS Foundation is trying to accomplish.
