Abstract: Our editor has asked me to "imagine a world where identity management has fully evolved to serve the individual researcher's needs-a world where discovery to delivery of licensed content is a smooth and sane experience." Tall order, but he caught me at a good time; because, after many years of looking, I can now see a path to that future-one that ends with the Internet of Things. Amidst this early buzz, one finds two default assumptions about the Internet of Things. One is that to be "smart" things need embedded intelligence. The other is that the parties most responsible for smart things are their makers. Both are wrong.
