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.

The Internet of Things: Talk Talk Talk, But Nothing To Say

Source, Brian Proffitt: "As I outlined in an earlier piece on the subject, the Internet of Things is currently limited by the fact that manufacturers have embraced a profusion of incompatible protocols for communicating with their devices.
