I’m not really looking forward to the “Internet of Things”.
Partly it’s because of the nightmarish security risks – which we’re already seeing.
Partly I think it’s because it promotes a formo of “connectedness” that isn’t very connected.
But mostly it’s because, workign in the software industry as I do, I know that software doesn’t just work. The more complex it is, the longer it takes to debug, and the more byzantine the errors.
In fact, the recent Ethiopian Air and Lion Airways crashes have reinforced my desire to fly only in planes controlled by hydraulics and, if possible, mechanical cables.
