IoT: which for the first time in the history of technology sets forth its own disappearance as technology as fundamental to its success. editor_iot 14/06/2020 – 09:34
2005: Europe’s Future and Emergent Technology Programs as well as the major corporate labs as the new EU vision of Digital Territory have fallen unequivocally for pervasive computing (ubicomp, ambient intelligence, things that think, i3, Disappearing Computer Initiative ) which for the first time in the history of technology sets forth its own disappearance as technology as fundamental to its success. The result will be dumb interfaces that hide all keys to the technology that drives it and consequently it will keep citizens from being able not only to fix it when it is broken but to build on it, to play with it, to remake, remodel, reuse it for their own ends. I believe this being able to negotiate stuff, stuff that is axiomatic thinking embodied, is called: creativity.
EU R&D is aimed at keep on keeping on supporting existing ways of claiming to do research instead of aiming at violent intellectual clashes, discontinuities and risk-taking.
