Internet Of Things

To date the biggest question a company could hope to address is how their creation can fit into the landscape of evolving technology…

Ladies and gentlemen, the internet of things.

While research into the networking of machines may have begun in the 60’s with the first packet switching taking place on Arpanet, Cyclades, Telnet, and Tymnet, the actual internet as we know it today wasn’t really recognizable until the late 80’s with the emergence of commercial ISP’s. (Internet service providers)

However prior to the advances that shaped the protocols we recognize, the foundations for the “internet of things” or “IOT” was probably much closer in practical scale to the advances in 1973 by the Norwegian Seismic Array. (Norsar)

The logic being that if you could use satellite connections to send data from one device to another at real speeds you had something useful.

Today’s app driven advances connecting your blender to your cell phone aren’t nearly as imaginitive as they were in the 70’s when the practical designs for such an application relied still on switches.

Let’s not forget the limitations of the tech at the time, as by 1990 there still weren’t computers available for such tasks that had fast bandwidth, despite the existence of supercomputers.

Imagine trying to control even one device at any distance with a weak and lousy internet connection and you begin to see the picture of where many of our advances came from.

Don’t be fooled though, countless app driven appliances still have such hurdles to overcome. It’s one thing to power on your TV with a cellphone, it’s another thing entirely to program the recorder for your shows, start your car, adjust your house lights, and stream from your own media servers, from that same cellphone you refuse to upgrade.

In fact it’s reasonable to guess that one of the advances most sought by tech companies today will be scalable tech that allows plenty of configuration that works around the user’s reluctance.

Because while your Grandmother is worried about the i-toaster becoming a terminator and killing everyone, the pragmatic philosophy behind connecting everything has less to do with spying, and skynet, and more to do with pushing the convenience of networking to the limit to evolve technology.

That technology can link us to one another in useful ways for generations to come.

As long as it runs Linux.

Otherwise who knows what it will become overnight while questionable corporations watch what we do.

#Cheers

  24. Today, I went to the beach with my children. I found a sea shell and gave it to my 4 year old daughter and said “You can hear the ocean if you put this to your ear.” She put the shell to her ear and screamed. There was a hermit crab inside and it pinched her ear. She never wants to go back! LoL I know this is entirely off topic but I had to tell someone!
