This is truly a treat for your weekend. Bruce Sterling, picking up on his thoughts in Shaping Things, riffs for the first 20 on the "internet of things" and how difficult he find the scenarios to manifest. Then Scott Klinker, 3-D Designer-in-Residence at Cranbrook, hits the PowerPoint with some student explorations of what some of that futurestuff might look like. The whole thing is branded as a Google Tech Talk (indeed, there are loftier aspirations for Google's involvement--who better to catalog the I-O-T), so this conversation is just getting started.
The audience is tiny here, but not for long.
