"Pachube (patch-bay), connects people to devices, applications, and the Internet of Things. As a web based service built to manage the world's real time data, Pachube gives people the power to share, collaborate, and make use of information generated from the world around them."
"Pachube was born out of the founder Usman Haque's need to handle real time data from sensors in the interactive environments for his design practice. The prototype officially became 'Pachube' in 2008 and was released to the public in 2010. Since then, Pachube has powered crowd sourcing movements, been built into consumer devices, and make possible thousands of custom applications."
