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.

"This privatisation of the immaterial city is akin to that of its material host which has been exposed by the recent Occupy movements and discussed in books such as Anna Minton’s Ground Control. When access to data is privatised, we become the product and the advertisers become the users, a phenomenon already being witnessed in the privatisation of the internet by companies such as Facebook, Google, Twitter and Amazon, in which we are all, to a greater or lesser extent, complicit. This is something that needs careful consideration before we all sign up to being ‘smart’." great points

I am interested in working through materialized thought experiments.

Architecting the Internet of Things
"Many of the initial developments towards the Internet of Things have focused on the combination of Auto-ID and networked infrastructures in business-to-business logistics and product lifecycle applications. However, the Internet of Things is more than a business tool for managing business processes more efficiently and more effectively – it will also enable a more convenient way of life. Since the term "Internet of Things" first came to attention when the Auto-ID Center launched their initial vision for the EPC network for automatically identifying and tracing the flow of goods within supply-chains, increasing numbers of researchers and practitioners have further developed this vision. The authors in this book provide a research perspective on current and future developments in the Internet of Things."

He recently conducted a study in Ghana, where he attached tiny pollution sensors to the phones of 15 taxi drivers.

Some of the taxi drivers changed their routes as a result.
