  3. 3. The original version of this chart was published in TechCrunch: In this Version 2.0, we’ve revised the chart to reflect a number of comments and suggestions we received after the post was published. Important note: The internet of things continues to evolve rapidly, and as always, reality resists attempts at categorization. This chart is not meant to be a definitive classification of all companies in the space: even though the chart is already very full, it is likely we have missed a number of companies. Also, several companies/products fall in multiple categories, which is why the same logos occasionally appear in different boxes. Finally, a number of companies don’t fit particularly well in any category – in those cases, we’ve added them to the closest match. Thoughts and comments are very welcome – please leave them in the comment section of this blog post: Many thanks to my colleague Sutian Dong at FirstMark Capital for her invaluable help.
