Sean Dodson is teaching Journalism and writing for the Guardian. He was among the first to write about the Internet of Things for a broad audience.
Internet of Things is at a crossroads. It can only work if citizens are willing to pay for services and investments in infrastructure, which can only happen if the use of novel business models will bring added value to old services or the development of totally new services. Value for everyday life and everyday activities must be shown.
Throughout, seminars, workshops, conferences, meetups and meetings are set up increasingly aware about this.
