Google Glass head Tony Fadell talks Internet of things, proactive technology in recent essay | 9to5Google
"Tony Fadell, CEO of Nest and head of Google’s Glass division, recently published an essay at The Wall Street Journal highlighting his thoughts on the future of the Internet:
Today, most technology is reactive. We ask a question and get an answer in return. It’s useful, but it’s also limiting. What if we don’t ask the right question? What if we don’t know we need to ask a question in the first place?
In the future, more conversations will happen proactively."

It starts with getting everyone on Earth online.
- Connecting everything
Second, in the not-too-distant future, the question won’t be what devices are connected—it will be what devices aren’t connected.
- From big data to useful information
Third, the Internet will get better at turning data into information.
- Reactive vs. proactive
Finally, the Internet of the future will go from doing things when we ask to doing thingsbefore we ask."
