Cory Doctorow continues to provide incredibly interesting, provocative, and strong perspectives on the Internet of Things (IoT). He does so within the context of what’s happening globally as well as with United States law, but also with an eye on privacy and security implications.
In this talk from O’Reilly’s Solid Conference 2015 (one I’d not yet seen though it’s been out for awhile), Cory ranges from “ecosystem” strategies to the war on terror, from the copyright wars to the subprime lending industry, and how it seems like everyone wants to build an Internet of Treacherous Things whose primary loyalty is to someone other than the people with whose lives they are intimately entwined.
