The Little Things of Horror

The current age where privacy is no longer regarded as "a social norm" may not long survive the coming of the Internet of Things.

Alasdair Allan is a scientist, author, hacker, and journalist. In the past he has mesh networked the Moscone Center, caused a U.S. Senate hearing, and contributed to the detection of what was—at the time—the most distant object yet discovered.
