French Startup SigFox Has Developed a Wireless Internet Service for Gadgets and Appliances | MIT Technology Review
SigFox builds its networks in the same way as a cellular provider, using a system of connected antennas that each cover a particular area and link back to the operator’s central network. But the antennas use a different radio technology, developed by SigFox, known as ultra narrow band. This technology would not be of much use for streaming video to an iPhone, but it allows devices connecting to the network to consume very little energy, says Nicholls, and it allows for very long-range connections.

House of Fraser Liverpool "micro" / "buy and collect" store
"House of Fraser.com has been created for you to come in, relax and shop online using one of our stylish and sophisticated terminals in the centre of Liverpool.

cityofsound: Why Lost is genuinely new media
"On the form itself, Lost episodes are famously laden with arcana to pore over, deconstruct and even construct in the first place, such is the collective-imagination-run-wild of the show's fans. For instance, this site which supplies transcripts of the eery 'whispers'; character names are opportunities for anagrams ('Ethan Rom' = 'Other Man'); there are numbers, codes everywhere; hieroglyphics; mystical allusions; references to philosophy (Locke, Rousseau); the constant casual appearance of literary works etc. The embedded puzzles involved will remind some of a certain age of the Masquerade phenomenon ..." thinking about the different ways we need to get our Foresight work out.

"Over the past few years, one of the most important shifts in the digital world has been the move from the wide-open Web to semiclosed platforms that use the Internet for transport but not the browser for display. It’s driven primarily by the rise of the iPhone model of mobile computing, and it’s a world Google can’t crawl, one where HTML doesn’t rule." great diagram showing the traffic through different internet sources showing a peak in 2000 for web based (browser) internet activity - peak web

The Future of the Internet in Health Care: A Five-Year Forecast
via Francesca "Why is the use of the Internet in health care growing so quickly? How sustainable is that growth? What kinds of health-related applications will develop over the next five years? How will the Internet affect health care delivery and health outcomes? In all the excitement about the Internet, there inevitably will be unrealistic expectations about its impact on the health care industry. This forecast sorts through the current hype to give a realistic assessment of the pace and direction of change for the next five years."

Video surveillance automated lighting and traffic control systems run on protocol
About 18,000 lights and thermostats distributed through the main stadium district in Olympic Park are controlled by 200 IPv6-enabled control nodes, Dong said. The IPv6-based system has intelligence to control the lights in a manner that reduces energy consumption.

Taxicabs that provide local transportation have been equipped with IPv6-based sensors. The sensors use wireless applications to transmit a taxi’s location and traffic conditions to a central control center, which can assess traffic congestion and re-route the vehicles accordingly. Some 15,000 taxis are participating in the program
