Internet of Things

The Internet of Things refers to all the small computers in our lives we just use without controlling them, from the computers in our cars to the computers in routers, lamps, ovens, fridges, televisions, and so on.

The main point is that these things are often connected to the Internet, which allows them to exfiltrate a lot of data about our private lives, and at the same time they need to be cheap or we wouldn’t buy them, which means that they often lack security updates or quickly lose support.

Most of the time we can’t fix this ourselves because we haven’t been granted our basic freedoms to help ourselves. This is also referred to as [[Tivoization?]].
