People are so excited about the potential of IoT that they forget that there is such a huge application in business uses more than getting your stuff to automate itself! I just realised what a big change this could be for tracking and logistics if we are able to put everything on some sort of connected communication system! Wow!

@jring, excellent point. And whenever you talk about software, you also have to talk about security. The number of backdoors, bugs, etc in software that create security holes is huge--and supply chains carry critical and (for the criminal) monetizable information so they will be targets for attack increasingly.

Better not overlook the increasing threat of software bugs. When the things in the IoT are software bugs the damage to any one participant increases as the square of the number of participants. Technologies for fault-free software are rapidly emerging. Be alert.
