IoT’s killer app is not home security @TechCrunch @hirimalibe

I was linked to Revel Systems CTO Chris Ciabarra’s recent TechCrunch piece “IoT’s Killer App is Home Security” by a friend and found myself a bit taken aback by what I was reading. I’m sure he’s a very nice man, but the assertions made about being able to rely on IoT in a home security…

The worth of your professional profile, network and personal data — TechCrunch

Tim Berners-Lee created the web in 1989. Twenty-seven years later, he’s asking for a reinvention. The web has made life easier, but it has also introduced challenges and ethical questions pertaining to personal data, access to information and privacy.
