Tesla’s Software Update To Enable Self-Driving Cars Both Delights And Concerns Me

In a fascinating bit of synchronicity, yesterday morning at pretty much the exact same time that I was finalizing the publication of our IoT Overview paper and publishing Karen Rose's IoT blog post, my friend (and former CEO of a company for which I worked) Jonathan Taylor was posting a photo to a social network of receiving a software update for his car over the Internet.

Yes, you read that correctly. 

His car, a Tesla, was downloading a software update across his home WiFi network.
