  • THE UNIVERSAL ADDRESSABILITY OF DUMB THINGS

    “The universal addressability of dumb things” is a phrase referring to an emerging concept in computing that aims to create a living network of everyday objects: an Internet of Things. Once dumb things become contactable, they can begin to tell us what we don’t yet know. And as we enter into correspondence with man-made artifacts, we are immersed in an animated world of innumerable and elastic dimensions, in which everything possesses not only the possibility of life but a complete set of emotions.
