These ideas require looking at a garbage can or a streetlamp as a node in a software system. In turn, the companies that make them need to think of themselves not as organizations that stamp steel, mold plastic, or forge iron, but companies that develop software. That organizational change is happening, and corporations that don’t get it will be left behind.

Beautiful as the Nest is, it’s not an iPhone. Its goal isn’t to make you spend time with it. Its goal it to disappear into the infrastructure, to be ignored.
