Chris Murphy: Internet Of Things: Who Gets The Data?

Source: „Picture a roundtable discussion about the Internet of Things and who should get access to the data it generates. Who do you picture at that table, clamoring to get access to (or keep away from) the data created by this growing network of devices?
Me, I go right for the dramatic tension and picture a chief marketing officer, an ACLU lawyer, and an NSA analyst who identifies herself only as Susan. Most companies will face a reality that's far less

Jamin Andrews: The Internet of Things (IoT)

Source: „There is a new buzz word that has been making its way around the online world, expected to soon replace “Cloud” as the latest hot topic. You may already have heard it mentioned in the media, the latest buzz is a thing called the Internet of Things (IoT). So, what is IoT? In the broader sense it is all Internet connected devices, originally named by Kevin Ashton in 1999, the Internet of Things had been in development for decades before.

Daniel Newman: Internet of Things: Time For A Name Change?

Source: „While an exact number may be all but impossible to come by, the estimated 10 billion devicesconnected to the “Internet of Things” (IoT) in 2014 isn’t really all that many. I mean, we live in a world of more than 7 billion people, so if you look at it that way, there isn’t even 1.5 connected devices per person on earth. Now of course that isn’t the way it works because our world doesn’t have that kind of equality. As we know it is probably a fraction of the

Rob van Kranenburg: What would RAND do in the age of Internet of Things, DIY Nano and DIY Bio?

The successful combination of balance of disciplines and funding (A), choice of use cases (B) and building of new methodologies (C) - is rare, and when it succeeds it means a period of hegemonic and infrastructural domination. 
One of the most successful negotiations is by RAND.  In a report to the Secretary of War, Commanding General of the Army Air Force H. H. "Hap" Arnold

David Kirkpatrick: The Right to Be Forgotten? Europe's Orwellian Internet Time Warp

The court endorsed a profoundly ahistorical, anti-technological argument about the supposed rights of individuals. The plaintiff, Mario Costeja Gonzalez, is a Spanish citizen who was joined by a Spanish government agency in arguing that Google ought not link to a 1998 newspaper mention of a real estate auction that showed that he owed the government money back then. He argued it was no longer relevant

Alan Weissberger: Are the Internet of Things (IoT) & Internet of Everything (IoT) the Same Thing?

Source: „For quite some time, Cisco and Qualcomm have used the term Internet of Everything (IoE) to describe what almost everyone else refers to as the Internet of Things (IoT).
Qualcomm says on its IoE web page: “When smart things everywhere are connected together, we will be able to do more and be more. This is the Internet of Everything (IoE),

Jim O’Reilly: The Internet of Things: Not So Scary (Securities not security)

Source: „IoT will increase the flow of data, but should be manageable with proper attention to WiFi requirements and security.
Whenever the Internet of Things (IoT) gets mentioned in the press, there is a sense of an awesome monster about to be unleashed on a poor, unsuspecting IT industry. Billions of devices, more big data than we have ever seen (maybe we need to call it bigger data), and computing up the wazoo!

John Kuhn Medill: With ‘Internet of Things,’ your fridge will know when milk is low

Source: „Americans are adapting to a world in which virtually everything _ from cellphones and cars to washing machines and refrigerators _ is going to be connected to the Internet or networks. Many of these devices will _ and do _ “talk” to one another via tiny sensors that function almost like human senses, logging information such as temperature, light, motion and sound. Theoretically, the sensors

Patrick Gray: Innovation and the Internet of Things/Size does not matter

Source: „The Internet of Things (IoT) is often associated with huge companies with vast R&D budgets. Here's how a small business with a passion for innovation uses connected device technology to stay ahead. 
I have been in the market for a new grill, and was considering purchasing both a standard gas grill and a smoker, the latter as I've become more interested in barbecue. I was intrigued to discover "pellet grills," a niche I was not previously aware of.
