Like as cloud computing when the starting comments began in 2009, nowadays the issues turn around the internet of things, the relation of M2M like Naveed said.

Who talks about this is the researcher Ray Kurzweil, and about the revolution of nanotechnology which will have direct impact in our lives and the way we deal with internet. It is an exercise to predict how the future will be, an how internet governance could deal with all this important themes.

Yes. Indeed the Internet of Things is surely a growing phenomena where M2M (Machine to Machine) communication would lead the way. Thank you the details Jorge and also the input provided by the Diplo. I really believe that social and community impact been brought in by the Internet invites a whole bunch of opportunities for all segments especially in context with developing countries. As a public officer i would rate the open and better governance among the top rated opportunity.

I appreciate this kind of interaction, and the very quick answer. The regulamention of Internet of thinks will be a very important framework regulation, and i think all countries will follow the iniciative.

And it has too many points that made it very relevant issue for internet governance, because not only internet becoming more sophisticated, but the technology as we see it today. How will be our society when machines, specially the computeres could absorve more knowledge then human beings?

Otherwise nanotechnology is another point that is connected with this issue of internet of thing, and their consequences are not too much studied until now. The future in uncertain but we could develop some structures to turn it more predictable

Thanks Jorge for sharing!

The open consultation started last week, and ends on 10 July. More information is available at http://ec.europa.eu/information_society/digital-agenda/actions/iot-..., which points to a European Commission page on the Digital Agenda. Quoting from the site:

The Internet of Things holds the promise of significant progress in addressing global and societal challenges and to improve daily life. It is also a highly promising economic sector for sustainability, growth, innovation and employment. But it is likely to have a profound impact on society, in areas like privacy, security, ethics, and liability. The policy challenge is to assess the right trade-off between the potential economic and societal benefits and the control that we want to retain over an environment where machines will gather, exchange, process and store information automatically. The effects on our private and public space require that people and their governments debate the appropriate governance and management of the Internet of Things in the future. To this end the European Commission envisions a recommendation addressing the main issues, of which a number are outlined in the questions of the consultation.

Naveed, how's that for crowd-sourcing? :) To tie in with your blog post on crowd-sourcing, looks like the European Commission is inviting public contributions on a wide variety of topics: http://ec.europa.eu/yourvoice/consultations/index_en.htm. Through these consultations, the public can participate in a more active way in shaping the policy that affects the public directly.
