The Internet of Things (IoT) is a vision. It is being built today. The stakeholders are known, the debate has yet to start. In hundreds of years our real needs have not changed. We want to be loved, feel safe, have fun, be relevant in work and friendship, be able to support our families and somehow play a role - however small - in the larger scheme of things. So what will really happen when things, homes and cities become smart? The result will probably be an tsunami of what at first looks like very small steps, small changes. The purpose of Council is to follow and  forecast what will happen when smart objects surround us in smart homes, offices, streets, and cities.

Jon Udell: The Internet of My Things

Source: "….Consider automotive maintenance. The sticker on my windshield reported the date of my last oil change, but now it’s fallen off, and in any case that sticker wasn’t connected to my calendar.

But there’s no easy and obvious way for me to authorize them to do that. Read more about Jon Udell: The Internet of My Things

David Brancaccio: Will.i.am on The Internet of Things

Source:; "Everywhere that we go in the world, the things that we come across aren't intelligent. Like this wall that I'm looking at, it's just separating the room from the other side. In actuality, that wall should be intelligent. Nobody thinks of it like that. That's why when you go into a house, you need to put a TV on it, instead of the wall being the display system.
