Alf’s Zoo – Is the Internet of Things Good or Evil?

 

This week, Chris Rixon brings a sober tone to the Zoo as he dissects the cultural and psychological impact of the Internet of Things. Like Dostoevsky and Kierkegaard before him, Rixon’s interest spans our role in a world where science and technology are too pervasive. Without joining the ranks of 19-century Luddites, he asks how our security and privacy, purpose and ambition, and relation to the natural world and each other will change as we build the biggest open system that’s ever been architected, with public protocols and limited protection.
