The Internet of Things

Just came across this via ReadWriteWeb and it got me thinking. From IBM’s Smarter Planet team, The Internet of Things is a 5+ minute video about data usage and how it is all becoming interconnected.

After watching the video, what are your thoughts? Do you think this an entirely positive direction we are heading? Will we continue to lose face to face interaction? How will this affect our future generation? Are we preparing them for this? Is society becoming too “big brotheresque?” Do people even care anymore if big brother is watching? Have we all become big brother, watching everyone else? Have we discovered that no one is doing anything truly interesting anyway, so why watch?
