Setting Standards for the Internet of Things - blogs.hbr.org (blog)

Setting Standards for the Internet of Things - blogs.hbr.org (blog) | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Fifteen years ago, one of the first major initiatives in the Internet of Things took place. In 1999, the Auto-ID Center was formed at MIT; it later became the Auto-ID Labs, a global consortium of researchers and practitioners.

That same year also marked the first recorded use of the Internet of Things (IoT) term by an Auto-ID co-director. (While the concept of connected things goes back at least two decades, to our knowledge it was Kevin Ashton, a co-founder of the MIT Auto-ID Center, who first used the appealing IoT term in 1999.) RFID was arguably the first major IoT technology of any scale. While not all RFID devices are connected to the Internet, from the beginning the technology involved a networked collection of sensors that monitored physical devices.

The idea is to use occasional (very quick) online surveys to ask people for their views on a range of local issues. As a some people don't use the internet it also gives online folk the opportunity to register their own friends, family and neighbours and catch their views by having a conversation with them in an offline manner.
