I just came upon this presentation by Adaptive Path and ThingM co-founder Mike Kuniavsky on the Internet of Things, which is becoming a catch-all phrase that encompasses more and more these days, as he rightly says. He talks about the connected web converting products into services, something I’m beginning to think a lot. I went into some of his older presentations, also worth looking at, and especially liked what he says about unboxing and why the phenomenon has lost lustre – because we grew up in a world where physicality of objects was important, but now ‘our objects have become less important than the services they represent’. Also, how one of the biggest challenges in the future is going to be deciding what NOT to do.
Lots of good stuff there.
