5 minute video involving several leaps of faith for the future of the internet of things. To be fair, one of the narrators at the end admits these are the baby step years for the internet of things.

Internet of Things defined as the point when data about things is greater than data about people.


You might be sending text messages, but the sidewalk you’re walking on has sensors, and the water mane and the bus and the trains – all of these independent systems have the potential to one day talk to each other, and autonomicly self-organize.

  2. Generate greater insights, watch new forms of social relations emerge for how we can organize to live on this planet.
