This paper engages the class of technologies described as the Internet of Things, and concentrates on its problematic implications for the notions of social identity and agency. The paper argues that this problematic is fundamentally a function of a social projection ill-equipped for encounters with objects becoming actively sociable, and suggests an examination of networked human-object assemblages with a conceptual apparatus borrowed from actor network theory.
