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.

By BOB : From the smart city to the resilient city

The middle is talking and capturing the destruction of their public lives and personal future hopes with ”iPhone” screen shots and videos. The frontline of the battle to maintain a voice on the future of the city and their rights to make their community is being  challenged by tear gas in favor of “shopping centers” and residential enclaves”... A talkative middle class is the safety network of a resilient city.  Read more about By BOB : From the smart city to the resilient city

Joseph Flaherty: MIT Whiz Sets Out to Humanize the Internet of Things

“Look around you — How many of the things you own foster memories?” asks Heun. “How many of those memories are important to your sense of self? And how fast can you access those memories by just touching and looking at these objects?” For many, the number will be high, but the question seems almost unnatural when talking about apps."

Yva Thakurdas on the IT Skills Shortage in the UK

"How can this be? It's a combination of a drop in university applications to study Computer Science, a decrease in numbers of Computer Science graduates, and a fall in students striving for jobs in the IT industry. The primary causes have been a decline in the standard of the computer science educational curriculum over the past 15-20 years and some university curricula not being aligned to industry requirements."

Tom Reftery: Belkin brings the Internet of things home (with bonus IFTTT)

"We asked Kevin if people would buy one of these Echo products. He replied that “We all care about things which affect us now, and tend to discount things where the benefits are down the line.” The Echo platform, he said can help with immediate savings. It can identify waste, identify costs and potentially shut off water in the event of a burst pipe...

Brian Proffitt: Connected Silos Or An Internet Of Islands?

"Alternatively, stronger and more widely used protocols used by more devices could create an "Internet of Islands," in Reinhardt's turn of phrase.
