Thinglinks rule the world.

After hearing Bruce Sterling's Emerging Technology keynote about 'The Internet of Things', I got interested into the concept of thinglinks, labels for everyday items bringing tagging, linking and searching to the real world. Ulla-Maaria Mutanen, who coined the term has now created an open database where people can create and share thinglinks, making the first step to bring the 'Internet of Things' a small step closer to reality.
