This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. There’s a new buzz phrase in tech circles these days: The Internet of Things. And it’s promising to be bigger than the Internet and the World Wide Web ever was. But what is it? And how will it impact our everyday lives? Will it help me? Should I be worried?  

Benson Hougland has a passion for technology of all kinds that drives a deep desire to make his work and the world around him better. His interests include making wine, making music, and making memories with family and friends in activities like boating, camping, and traveling.  

Benson is a 17-year Temecula resident, husband, and father of two elementary school boys and an adult daughter. As vice president at Opto 22, a local software developer and hardware manufacturer of products used in the industrial automation and information technology markets, he’s responsible for product evolution, marketing, training, and communications.
