Thursday 3F

Convener: Doc Searls and Bob Frankston

Notes-taker: Matt Berry

Discussion notes, key understandings, outstanding questions, observations, and, if appropriate to this discussion: action items, next steps:

Summary: Wizards don’t make points

  • Good slide deck on the history of Home Automation


  • “In Control” vs. “controls”
  • Being “in control” means there is an AI level

Make it brighter -> blinds or lights or mirrors

  • Having a “control” means you can turn lights on or off.


  • Not all IoT “things” work together


  • They all report data back to a vendor, because there’s no profit margin otherwise


  • Technology doesn’t have good enough AI for “In Control” yet
  • I walked onto the porch at night because I wanted to see the stars, but the AI turned on the porch lights so I could see the trash cans.
