According to an article published by Pew Research Institute, in 1999, about 4% of the world’s population was connected to the internet. Today, about 49% are connected, and about 8.4 billion connected “things” are in use worldwide. By “things”, we’re referring to the Internet of Things (IoT), a term used to describe things that are connected to the internet. Is the internet of things slowly consuming us? Or is this a necessary convenience as our society evolves?
