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.

Kimberly Koerth: Internet of Things Day future of IoT Discussions

Source: „Wednesday was "Internet of Things Day," with events planned in over 26 countries, as well as online. IoT Day provides a worldwide opportunity to learn about technologies that can enable the IoT vision to come to fruition.
The events primarily focused on new IoT capabilities, but not the accompanying need to strategically leverage existing IT investments in order to support these capabilities. With growth in the IoT projected to be 26 billion units installed by 2020, resulting in billions of dollars of additional value for suppliers, Aria Systems said the potential for revenue is there for those who develop successful IoT strategies.


Ben van Lier: Information crucial when considering future mankind

Source: „We need to accept our connection with technology. Only then can we move ahead, believes ICT strategist Ben van Lier. My clothing and accessories are becoming steadily more communicative. The sensors in my Nike shoes are connected wirelessly to my smartphone and reveal my current location to my relatives, how fast I am running and whether I am keeping up with the training schedule obtained from Nike. My shirt by OMsignal, a company whose vision is ‘Technology woven into life,’ measures my heart rate. My intelligent socks by Blacksocks indicate whether they are a pair. And if they are no longer absolutely perfectly black, the supplied app Read more about Ben van Lier: Information crucial when considering future mankind



IoT Rotterdam: Kudos to Martin Pot and Martin Spindler; a short report

IoT Rotterdam was a feast of validation for intuitive sets of practices and slow actualization of ideas of basically every speaker who either realized on spot or related actively how for the past decade the kind of thought processes that lie behind seeing ‚IoT’ as a new ontology, were either actively stalled or not actively supported within institutions, companies and ministries. The key red line we all saw unravelling in front of us was the realization that this is inevitable as disruptive change never gets warmly welcomed anywhere,  and that as the exception becomes the default (just witness the explosion of #iotday events) the danger

From fridges and thermostats to cars and cities, everything around you is getting connected. But what will it mean for your life?
 
1 It's about connected computers in everything
 
As technology buzz-phrases go, the Internet of Things is at least plainly descriptive: it's about putting the internet in, well, things. Fridges, smoke alarms, televisions, cars ... whatever the product,


Gillian West: Global Internet of Things Day - The Drum looks at some of the 'things' already online

Source: "The Internet of Things (IoT) is the idea that everything in your life is connected to the internet in some way, shape, or form constantly transmitting data and communicating with one another.
 
Coined in 2009 the IoT phrase has since gained such traction that today (9 April 2014) is Global Internet of Things Day.
 
In order to mark this occasion The Drum takes a look at some currently taking advantage of the IoT which is predicted to grow to 31bn connected devices by 2020."


Frank Gillet: Internet of Things Goes Home

Source: „The "connected home" is becoming a reality thanks to improved broadband networks and mobile apps. Here's a rundown of how our homes are getting smarter.
 
The connected home is no longer a futuristic vision -- many of the barriers that blocked the realization of a smart home have eroded. Network bandwidth is widespread, connectivity is becoming more common in many traditional home products, and consumers are craving smart-home experiences.
 
Technology, which had presented the greatest challenge to creating a connected home, is now manageable.

Kyle Vanhemert: This Brilliant Washing Machine Is a Roadmap for the Internet of Things

Source: „There couldn’t be a more perfect example of our absurd obsession with the internet of things than the connected washing machine. Nothing so concisely symbolizes just how ludicrous our mania for connectivity has become as a smartphone app that helps you wash your socks.
Berg, a design and technology development startup in London, shares this wariness of a mindlessly connected future, and much of its work centers on envisioning a smarter way forward. That said, the studio’s latest project might be even crazier


Jeremy Thomas: Peek into a parallel universe

Source: „Just as we begin to get our heads around big data, along comes another concept to blow our minds: the Internet of Things. This is the stuff of every science fiction novel, every paranoid fantasy, every marketer’s dream.
The Internet of Things refers to the billions of devices and sensors — from phones and ID cards to cows with biochip transponders and people with heart monitor implants — that feed information to the worldwide web. Entire networks of data, fired off by things as simple as a building thermostat or a car engine, are recorded every second on the internet.

Meet the Keynotes for Internet Of Things Philosophy, York

The Conference:  The Internet of Things (IoT) is an umbrella term used to describe a next step in the evolution of the Internet.
 
While the first phase of the web can be thought of as a combination of an internet of hyper-text documents and an internet of applications (think blogs, online email, social sites, etc.), one of the next steps is an Internet of augmented ‘smart’ objects – or ‘things’ – being accessible to human beings and each other over network connections.
This is the internet of Things.
