    “When big company Internet Of Things thinkers get
    involved they tend to spawn creepy videos about
    sleek people in sleek homes living optimised lives
    full of smart objects...There's no magic or joy or
    silliness in it. Just an optimised, efficient existence.”
    Russell Davies

    “I always think the big difference between the Makers and the
    corporate Internet Of Things lot is that the IoT people are trying
    to make the world more efficient and controlled and the Makers are
    trying to make it more personal and magic. They're imagining
    objects that come to life like they do in Harry Potter.”

  22. “We’re getting to the point now where if you watch
    this kind of stuff on the right device you’ll be able to
    do the lean back experience as before, but leaning
    into the device should give you vertigo.”

    grown-up, if you can’t be
    childish sometimes?”
