    The ‘internet of things’, refers to the technical and cultural shift as society moves to a 24/7 form of computing in which every device is ‘always on’, and every device is connected in some way to the internet. However, many versions of this notion rely upon one significant premise: that the thing remains in existence. Dr Chris Speed forecasts a near future when digital memories of artefacts remain as the only reference, because that thing has been lost or disposed of. Whilst the realworld artefact has been crushed, burnt or tipped into a landfill, the digital ‘ghost’ has the potential to live on within the networked society – searchable against any other data from the past, present or future. http://vimeo.com/28936140
