I have to travel for business. It’s a perk, and sometimes a drawback, of the job. And while I travel, there’s nothing more important to me than to stay connected. Connected to work and family, yes, but also connected to ‘things’. That sounds strange doesn’t it? Needing to be connected to my things. However, more and more, my life is being dominated by things that are connected and controlled over the internet. My house alarm, heating and hot water are the things I stay connected to when I’m away with work. It’s a list that’s steadily growing.
