The Internet of Things

My session discusses the evolution of the opt-in model we’ve come to accept in today’s mobile app ecosystem, and the future possibilities that location-based search gives us to enhance our interactions with the world around us.

App developers live with an often accepted barrier; having to download the app - incredibly restrictive, but widely accepted by the consumer. Are we really going to keep doing this? Can the Internet of Things ever become a reality in a world that defaults to downloading functionality, rather than being presented it, unprompted? (in an unobtrusive way)

This session looks to the future of the web. The next step. The Internet of Things.
