The Internet of Things

Title and summary

Rob Van Kranenburg, Internet of Things

Internet infrastructure has been build on a public model democracy that has delivered sewage systems, roads, relatively good education, health, and social economic lifelines for a large group of people. How inclusive will the internet of things be when citizens can go fully parallel in an IoT world sharing and buying energy through Pachube and social networks, using private services as the public ones have been sold? Our input and consultancy should be aimed in the first place to help the current
institutions, corporations, and public bodies to transform peacefully into a networked model of open data, direct feedback on where money goes, participatory budgeting models (say 25% for innovation in your street and neighbourhood). We believe that IoT could be extremely relevant in making direct feedback visible in street and city furniture, and mobile applications .
