Paul,

I'm still "on the fence" regarding this Internet of Things encroaching on my personal life, particularly my health and fitness. I admittedly often do use a GPS device and upload my running/cycling workouts to a website Strava.com to track my mileage, pace, and time -- and to compete against my friends. However, I also sometimes like to just go "off the grid" and grab one of my old vintage 1970's steel-framed racing bicycles and just head out into the mountains for a cathartic ride without any wires, electrodes, anal probes, or blue teeth. I guess my comment/question is... all this Internet of Things is great, but will we still retain the ability to "pull the plug" when we want?

Kind of reminds me of this old humorous tale: http://politicalhumor.about.com/library/jokes/bljokebigbrotherpizza.htm
