Cloud computing and virtual communities have been changing the face of communication. Cloud computing covers almost every services and provides most of data services. On the other hand, wireless sensor networks (WSN) gained attention for their potential supports such as environment monitoring, bio-median acknowledgment, healthcare monitoring, industrial automation etc. But this sensor network is not available to community groups or cloud environment for general purpose research or utilization yet. If we can reduce the gap between real and virtual world by adding this WSN produced data to cloud environment and virtual communities to alert the general researchers about environmental situations, it can gain a remarkable attention all over and we can be benefited in all our ability. To do this we need to make collaboration between sensor networks and the cloud environment. Here we have proposed a pub/sub based middleware service for WSN and Cloud platform collaboration which will provide resource, service, and storage with sensor driven data to the community. We proposed a content based event matching algorithm to analyze subscriptions and match proper content easily to convey WSN driven data to subscribers. The validation shows this content matching algorithm works efficiently compared with previously proposed algorithms to integrate WSN to cloud environment to lower the gap between real and virtual world.
