Re: California drought?
Kinda like pulling an available address from a pool of TCP/IP addresses, eh, Atul? Or making better use of some server space that's underutilized. Or diverting processing power to a different CPU.

The Internet of Things, Smart Edition, that we talk about so often is just a giormous enterprise network.

Re: Broadband and CCTV
@Toby, I'd extend that idea to dog poop -- littering of another sort. There are fines on the books for leaving dog waste, of course, but here in Barcelona, it doesn't appear to be much of a deterent.

Re: Bandwidth Limitations
I'm still in awe of what the access brings us but as you say I want it brought to me fast. And I'm very concerned by the ongoing attempts to control just what information we are able to get.

I'm referring to net neutrality and the attempt by big cable to restrict access to the Internet. I urge all readers to tell the FCC that equal and uncensored access to the Internet is important to you. Learn more and take action at sevetheinternet dot com.

Re: California drought?
This potential really is very exciting. One thing I've discussed before is the management of the data - from all entities and consumers as well. As the internet of things moves forward, can we use this information in our daily lives in a manageable way?

Re: As Costs Go Down
By coincidence, I just read read an article of drone video of Apple's new "spaceship campus" site. It's not only the monitoring we can do for protective purposes, but what many others are doing observing us ...

Re: Bandwidth Limitations
Yes, I do remember those days. Interestingly, in the earlier days of internet access, we were much more tolerant of slowness - just being in awe of what this access brought us. Now the expectation for "fast" are very high. Perhaps it's a statement on society as a whoe, too.

Re: Bandwidth Limitations
That is certainly an interesting point. If Netflix can wreak havoc on web traffic, what will the cumulative effect this new connectivity be?

Maybe "there's an App for all of those things." -- The problem, as usual, is that habiyual violators acorss this array of infraction find ways to escape it!

Re: Broadband and CCTV
We often joke in the Providence , RI area that noone knows that jaywalking is illegal! Ceratinly there are some limits here.
