yes this is pretty scary stuff:"It would seem that science fiction is slowly turning into science fact in an 'Internet of Things' based on ubiquitous network connectivity," the report said Thursday, saying objects would take on human characteristics thanks to technological innovation."Today, in the 2000s, we are heading into a new era of ubiquity, where the 'users' of the Internet will be counted in billions and where humans may become the minority as generators and receivers of traffic," it added.Currently there are about 875 million Internet users worldwide, a number that may simply double if humans remain the primary users of the future.But experts are counting on tens of billions of human and inanimate "users" in future decades.
