re: 'Rise Of The Machines': Should CIOs Tune In?
I didn't see it (no cable TV), but the thing to look for is not just the "beware the dark side" like the home snooping, but also the "what stands in the way" shortcomings. Battery life, cell coverage, analytics software, data quantities -- these are the things that kill many a grand internet of things concept.

Tom Coates, the product designer whose house tweets at him, sent me a link to a brief interview he did answering why he has turned his house into a tweeting machine. He said it was okay to post here, and it has some good thoughts on the nature of connectedness. http://www.industrialinternet....

re: 'Rise Of The Machines': Should CIOs Tune In?
The Internet of things is already happening, but the two main questions I have are:
1. Whether we've learned anything about the need to plug in security and standards from the get-go (probably not) and
2. Who exactly owns this data? Say you buy a "smart" refrigerator. Your dietician/doctor, health insurer, the grocery store where you shop, food makers -- all will want access to information on what you eat. They need data to feed their expensive big data analytics setups, after all. The privacy implications are huge.

Let me know if you tune in, and whether you think I've fielded too many PR calls on the subject and have become jaded.

IT's Reputation: What the Data Says
InformationWeek's IT Perception Survey seeks to quantify how IT thinks it's doing versus how the business really views IT's performance in delivering services - and, more important, powering innovation. Our results suggest IT leaders should worry less about whether they're getting enough resources and more about the relationships they have with business unit peers.
