What's this "Thing" about the "Internet of Things?"

The “Internet of Things” is becoming an increasingly growing topic of conversation both inside and outside of the workplace. It’s a concept that not only has the potential to impact how we live but also how we work.  But what exactly is the “Internet of things” and what impact is it going to have on you, your work, your program delivery, teaching, or research.

The new rule for the future is going to be, “anything that can be connected, will be connected.”  But why would we want so many connected devices talking to each other? How would we benefit from a more "thoughtful" office or home? If our cities or communities were smarter how would that impact our daily lives? There are many examples for what this might look like or what the potential value might be.
