It is happening. Everyday more and more objects (mostly sensors so far) are connected to the Internet. We have only to take a look at Pachube as an example, to be aware about what we are talking about. They started just five years ago with the idea of providing a place where people can send information generated by their sensors and share information. Now they have hundreds of thousands of feeds. “I have no connection, nor interest in Pachube, but I take them as an example of what is happening”, says Roberto Saracco, IEEE Communications Society Senior member. It is getting easier and easier to have more objects connected to the Internet, as there is a growing interest in sharing data.
Saracco explains in this article found in the IEEE Communications Society Blog, his point of view on this phenomenon.
