"[I]f every wired household will need to hire a network security consultant to keep their smart TV and intelligent toasters safe from viruses, implementing the "always connected" future will present some practical problems." Let's just hope that, as a society, we can be a bit more mature about this than children in a candy store. Personally, I loathe the idea of ever using a modem again, but I would manage. This is all cool stuff but if "network security" means giving up some of the fundementals that we rely on ( read: take for granted ) then I think we need to take a long hard look before we do anything. see also : People for Internet Responsibility and John Jannotti : Network Services in an Uncooperative Internet.
