Abstract

The activist group Consumers Against Supermarket Privacy Invasion and Numbering (CASPIAN) was founded in 1999 by Katherine Albrecht. The very same year Kevin Ashton, co-founder and executive director of the then Auto-ID Center at M.I.T., made a presentation to Proctor & Gamble with a title that included the phrase "Internet of Things." According to Ashton, "the most numerous and important routers of all" are people [1], but people have limitations and are not very good at capturing data about objects in the physical world.
