Editor, IoT For Real

About this community:

A lot is being written today about the “internet of things.” Much of what we’ve seen describes an alternately wonderful and scary sci-fi vision of a world in which smart versions of everyday objects talk to us – and, more important, to each other – as they collaborate to either empower or enslave us. Since the moment of “singularity,” when some expect artificial intelligence to exceed human intelligence, is predicted to occur about the time that the Internet of Things reaches maturity – between 2030 and 2040 – perhaps there is reason to be afraid.

Never mind. We won’t dwell on the future.

Our goal in IOT FOR REAL is to provide unbiased, practical information about the capabilities and shortcomings of connected things today. We’ll cover connected homes, health, energy and sustainability applications, safety and security, privacy, and even a networked environment. We’ll also cover some of the less technical uses of connected devices in business, especially small business.

Welcome to age of the internet of things … for real!
