Living among the Internet of Things

Everyday devices are, more and more, connecting to the Internet, from obvious things like your DVR, to connected light bulbs, to unexpectedly connected kitchen appliances. Some of them are open source, easily managed, and fun to use. Some of them are connecting without your knowledge, with little concern for security or privacy. Most are somewhere in between.
