Hexagram 63 (既濟/jì jì) representing completion: an appropriate way to signal the end of my trip. After an interesting couple of weeks in Europe and the US, I can head home with my mission complete.
An interesting couple of days at the VIA office in Fremont, California, reviewing the new systems based on the VIA Mobile360 SVS and VIA Smart Recognition platforms that we are developing for markets in the US and Latin America.
It would be an exaggeration to say that I’ve been under confinement (Hexagram 47 – 困/kùn) as a result of the snow and wind that have ravaged Britain over the past few days, but I do have to admit to feeling a certain amount of restlessness as a result of being unable to venture much further than the village green and churchyard for my daily walk because of the icy paths and roads.
My I Ching reading is a vital morning ritual for me. It helps me to start the day right by initiating an internal dialog with myself on the topics raised by the hexagram(s) that I have formed with the casting of the coins.
A busy second day at Embedded World 2018. I haven’t seen any visitor numbers, but show attendance appears to be very good this year, even though the event is taking place at the same time as the much more glitzy and glamorous Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. I take this as a healthy sign of the growing momentum in the industrial and enterprise IoT sectors.
