Super WHY Live! Will Tour the U.S. in April & May

Based on the top-rated preschool TV series on PBS KIDS

NEW YORK, Jan. 22, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- S2BN Entertainment and Out of the Blue Enterprises are pleased to announce the Spring 2013 U.S. tour of Super WHY Live: You've Got the Power! Based on the top-rated, Emmy-nominated preschool TV series that airs on PBS KIDS everyday across the U.S., Super WHY Live brings entertainment and education together in an interactive live experience.

Super WHY Live was written by Super WHY creator Angela Santomero. The TV series has a proven ability to help boost preschoolers' early literacy skills, according to research by the Annenberg School for Communication at the University of Pennsylvania. Super WHY Live dimensionalizes this "edu-tainment" experience for Super WHY fans in a new way. To top that off, Jack Antonoff of the Grammy-nominated band "fun." wrote and produced the live show's soundtrack. The live show was developed and is proudly produced by S2BN Entertainment (Yo Gabba Gabba! Live and Spider-Man on Broadway), in association with Out of the Blue Enterprises.

Super WHY Live will stop in 27 cities across the U.S. in April and May, taking kids and parents on a live reading adventure traveling inside a book to find the answer to the question, "Who has the Greatest Super Power in the World?" The show is uplifting, entertaining, and educational. It features kids' favorite literacy-powered super heroes: Alpha Pig with "Alphabet Power," Wonder Red with "Word Power," Princess Presto with "Spelling Power," Super Why with the "Power to Read," and their puppy pal Woofster.

Fans who want to sing along at the show can get a head start learning the music, as the soundtrack album, Super WHY Live: You've Got the Power Soundtrack from Razor & Tie is available now at iTunes, Amazon.com, and retailers nationwide.

For an extra special experience, You've Got the Power! Party Packages offer premium seats and a meet & greet with your favorite characters after the show.

Early adopters of IoT viewed it mainly as a different term for machine-to-machine connectivity or M2M. This is understandable since a prerequisite for any IoT solution is the ability to collect and aggregate device data, which is most often presented in a dashboard. The problem is that viewing data in a dashboard requires a human to interpret the results and take manual action, which doesn’t scale to the needs of IoT.

Much of IT terminology is often misused and misapplied. Modernization and transformation are two such terms. They are often used interchangeably even though they mean different things and have very different connotations.

However, many businesses are being led to believe if they don’t transform now they risk becoming ...
