Re: I Prefer Dumb Robots to Smart Houses
Not sure how these robots qualify as Internet of Things. OK they are things. But they aren't on the Internet.
One thing I'll take issue with in your article is the claim about it fulfilling the vision of the Internet of Things. They aren't. There is no vision, other than the prediction that 50 Billion devices will have IP addresses by 2020 -- and only ~4 Billion of those will have a human behind it.
The objection is this: there is no vision, just a bunch of market experiments happening in parallel. It's an emergent design, and we may be able to string enough of the successes together in ten years to claim a vision. But that's an after-the-fact, revisionist view that belies the number of failures that will occur in the interim and will be "conveniently" omitted (from the "Plot the curve, and throw out the data points that don't fit" approach).
