Scenarios for the Internet of Things

This is actually rather hard and thus interesting. I don’t need a matrix as such, but I need a working version in order to flesh out some alternative yet plausible futures.

One thing I’ve discovered so far (I think) is there are some good dynamic tensions surrounding the IoT. One is between privacy issues and security concerns and productivity, efficiency and arguably personalisation.

A second is between open unified networks with common global standards and low regulation and partly closed or fragmented networks with differing standards and differing regulation across geographies or sectors.

A third tension might be a clash between the needs of governments intent on cost-savings and corporations seeking profits and the needs of private citizens.
