So far here are the only places I’ve found an official mention of the “sensorconomy”. I’d like to gather more information on this.

2011 build in sensors, like GPS, temperature, humidity, light- or compass-chips, create new mobile ecosystems – the sensorconomy.

The rise of the “sensorconomy” – a new economy and ecosystem driven by the Internet of Things. Is this M2M on steroids or is it much more than that? Monty expects a wave of new company and business models to cash in one this.

From Andrew Keen\’s rant we move on to a next09 panel on mobile telephony. What will the mobile environment look like in 2020? We begin with a brief video from the open think tank, showing where we\’ve come from, and where we may be going (a \’sensorconomy\’ based on digital device sensors, new mobile services and mobile broadband offerings, major takeup in India, Africa, and other developing regions, miniaturisation and embedding of mobile devices, a shift of newspapers from print to mobile delivery, instant translation tools, location tracking, and substantial privacy and security concerns).

Will books drop dead when the web becomes easier to hold?

According to recent news, the future of books and ebooks will be vook-like, and media tablets will turn books into multimedia, web-linked, social-networking experiences. It all sounds very new, but isn’t this already how people develop content for the web?

Should we worry about books, or should we simply take the web in hand (with the help of mobile tech) and continue to develop web content to its fullest potential?

Mobile Tech: Do we need to learn anything in advance anymore?

If we can learn anything at a moment’s notice, wherever we are, while in possession of mobile tech (such as a smartphone), is there any real need to learn something now for future application? That is, with a smartphone, don’t each of us already possess more knowledge than could be expected from any one person, the only difference being that we access it through a device in our hand rather than from memory?
