Together with the long time friend and lovely collaborator Alexandra Deschamps-Sonsino, I’m working on a book:
Connected: Understanding the Internet of Things.
We’re on a pretty tight schedule as we’re planning to launch at ThingsCon (2/3 May 2014).
This is what we’re planning to tackle:
The Internet of things as a term and a new industry has gone through a rapid transition from the sphere of academia (slow technology, ubiquitous computing) to appearing on national IT agendas (the UK’s announcement today of a further £50M in funding for that space). In this period of rapid development, it’s important to take stock and see the forrest from the trees. Connected will draw the landscape of short and long-term challenges and opportunities, document lessons learnt from the pioneers and showcase the most exciting connected products of the past 10 years of development.
For now, the project lives at thewavingcat.com/connected – it’ll have a real home soon. Over there, you can also sign up for news.
