Their summary:

"In Situated Technologies Pamphlets 8, Christian Nold and Rob van Kranenburg articulate the foundations of a future manifesto for an Internet of Things in the public interest. Nold and Kranenburg propose tangible design interventions that challenge an internet dominated by commercial tools and systems, emphasizing that people from all walks of life have to be at the table when we talk about alternate possibilities for ubiquitous computing. Through horizontally scaling grass roots efforts along with establishing social standards for governments and companies to allow cooperation, Nold and Kranenberg argue for transforming the Internet of Things into an Internet of People"

 

This is a well timed book that initiates a public debate about an Internet of Things

in the public interest moving forward and should be in your reading list.

You guys never let up on the one-upmanship, do you? sqiolol (smiling queltiy instead of laughing out loud)If you're still weighing topics, look up Mark Weiser (Wikipedia's a good start) as a starting point for an American ubicomp/pervasive computing philosophy.
