Internet Zero

Read an article in Scientific American while at the dentist's office recently talking about "Internet-0", which is some research into applying internet technology to smart home/smart building applications.

Found a draft of the paper here at MIT.

The paper goes into a lot of detail, but the basics are that it's better to build a smart home on top of existing Internet protocols, so that interoperation of devices with the global network is seamless. Very Neuromancer.
