Internet of things: quotes of the day


Bruce Sterling: My main problem with the term ubiquitous computation [is that] ubiquitous suggests that it comes from sorta one central broadcasting tower and covers the world like paint. But, in point of fact, systems of this kind are always patchy..It's not a kinda clean year-zero making-over, what happens is that a new and emerging technoculture composts the old one, it just kinda puts a weight on top and kinda crushes down the old habits and old frames of mind until they kinda gradually lose their colour and just turn into a mulch.
