Summary: Today's geo-enabled Web relies on a host of technologies and processes, notably mashups. But according to authors Giuseppe Conti, Raffaele De Amicis, Federico Prandi (all from Graphitech) and Paul Watson (from 1Spatial), those are just a stepping stone to future technologies and processes that will enable a spatio-temporal Internet of Places using the growing mass of unstructured data resources on the Web
As revolutionary as the mobile ecosystem is, it’s the interactions of more-intelligent connected devices with people outside the context of phones or computers that will drive more innovation, says Mark Rolston, the chief creative officer at Frog Design.

La valeur économique de tout objet est définie selon 2 critères : "rareté" et "utilité" (2). Aujourd’hui, afin de traiter le problème posé par la " rareté " d'un objet qui nous est "utile" (3), nous l'achetons (en prenons possession ) pour l’avoir en permanence à notre disposition et disposer de la garantie de pouvoir l’utiliser à n'importe quel moment, ce même si l’usage en est occasionnel.

Innovation and the ‘Internet of Things’ Posted on Mon, Oct 24, 2011
When the stream of media forming our consciousness is indistinguishable from the stream of consciousness forming our most enlightened media we will have arrived at a distinctly new place in human evolution .
The Internet of Things (IoT) or Machine to Machine (M2M), is a technological field that will radically change the global network by enabling the communication of virtually every single object with each other. Studies state that more than 50 billions objects may be connected to the Internet by 2020. In a near future, everything from a light bulb to a power plant, from a pacemaker to an hospital, from a car to a road network will be part of the Internet. While this revolution is already happening (your house or your car may be "connected" already!)
The Internet of Things to Come: elements of a ubiquitous computing innovation ecosystem (GigaOM presentation) - Orange ConeI was again honored to be asked to speak at GigaOM Mobilize this year.
Welcome to Thinking Ahead. We’ve brought together the best in tomorrow’s technology, the latest research into what consumers all around the world want, and leading experts’ insights into the future of the Networked Society. Ericsson ConsumerLab Find out what consumers want.
With the new year coming up fast and as we all draw a thankful breath that there is some form of holiday in sight, you would do well as a brand to keep an eye on what's going to be big in digital strategy next year to keep ahead of the game. Mobile tablets: Companies can expect to be dealing with their clients via diverse forms of media next year.
The internet has gone through many changes since the beginning. Currently it is undergoing the beginning of true convergence with the real world around us, turning on lights and such on our phones, to embedding stuff in our stuff to help us do things like help us drive our cars better, and making sure we get in trouble for being parked longer than we paid for at the meter. The delightfully uncreative name we've given this new internet is 'the internet of things '.
Some people find the naming of things to be incidental, uninteresting or even irrelevant, but from a sociological perspective the struggle to find the "right" name is critical to understanding people's interests, concerns and claims over domains of knowledge and practice. (For example, to declare the name of something an issue that needs correction, or as a problem to be solved, can be seen as the first step in what have called a sociology of translation--the successful result of which comprises an " as contested domains of knowledge and practice, so I was really interested in a conversation I followed on Twitter this morning. Now, it's actually pretty hard to sequentially represent a Twitter conversation between several people so the transcription below only approximates how it unfolded in real-time.
Some weeks ago The Economist published an article about ‘the internet of things’, with the provocative title ‘The internet of hype ‘. The journalist, (nick)named [?] Schumpeter, was invited to attend the corporate event Fundación de la Innovación in Madrid.
