Relax, little frog. Isn't the water pleasantly warm? I'll turn down the internet so you can nap.

Or a cellphone in everyone's pocket or every teenager's hands. Or a bluetooth earphone/microphone implanted in every head...

I though excessive noise and dystopia were pretty much already here. Maybe I'm over-sensitive.

As with all things, time and events will identify if it is good or bad. We will also see how it evolves. I doubt anyone can predict where it will go and how it will end up being used. All we know for certain is that it presents possibilities and all it will take is inspiration to exploit its capabilities. Let the entertainment begin.

"The Internet of things" sounds about as utopian as "a telegraph in every house." A better comparison to electricity would be the Higgs boson. Everyone is talking about it...nobody knows what it is useful for. Antigravity? Nuclear manipulation, and manufacturing? Who knows. But it is just as esoteric to the layman as electricity is. And judging from the history of the 20th century, even after we all use light switches and electronic gadgets routinely, it will still be mysterious to the layman.

It's almost like a new industrial revolution, where we're on the precipice of another form of automated workforce. I don't know how long it will take before most manufacturing jobs are all automated, but with robotics advancing at the pace it is, I wouldn't be surprised if we saw a major shift towards this in the next decade. Awesome post. Lots of food for thought.
