SXSW: How the Internet of Things Can Set Us Free (Maybe)
Mar 12 @ 10:00 am – 11:00 am

The “internet of things” is the expanding network of everyday objects—you can expect some 35 billion connected devices by 2020. The internet won’t be about your mobile phone or laptop anymore, it will be dominated by communication between devices, chips scattered over the natural world, and sensors embedded in our bodies. Should we fear or welcome the next internet? In my talk, based on my book “Pax Technica: How the Internet of Things May Set Us Free or Lock Us Up”, I demonstrate the value of the IoT and the privacy concerns that arise. I explain how the perfect behavioral data creates new opportunities for public conversation, community building, and political power.
