I tend not to believe the doom and gloom predicted as my personal information is already used to sell me things. Amazon already stalks me trying to sell me the last thing I searched for on their site. Not the end of the world. These electronic things come with an off switch.
The style here is what makes the book worth reading. The style is spare and the thinking is clear. The Epic Struggle of the Internet of Things is an entertaining read that blusters for a bit before coming to a random conclusion. It does do the first best thing that the written word can do. It makes you think.
In The Epic Struggle of the Internet of Things, Bruce Sterling does a brilliant job of describing what a mess the "IoT" is now, how it is likely to evolve, and what a big pain in everybody's butt it will be in the meantime. His writing, as always, is sarcastic, vivid and fun to read. Nobody cuts through BS better than Bruce, and he makes short work of it here. Highly recommended.
