by Russell M Davies, BBC

The internet of things is a phrase you are going to hear a lot over the next few years, and the clue is in the name as to what it is. It is about connecting objects rather than people. According to one estimate, there will be 50 billion things online by 2020; another estimate suggests it will be a trillion – nobody really knows. But lots of people have vested interests in wiring all these things up and charging for the bandwidth to do it.
