We talk from time to time on Marketplace Tech about the “Internet of Things” — the world where every thing is connected together, from appliances to cars to us. The concept can be a bit abstract, but Kevin Roose, writing for New York Magazine, makes it more concrete. For a week he plunged in to the Internet of Things and tells Marketplace Tech’s Mark Garrison why the future is almost here.

We’re here to help you navigate this changed world and economy.

Our mission at Marketplace is to raise the economic intelligence of the country. It’s a tough task, but it’s never been more important.

In the past year, we’ve seen record unemployment, stimulus bills, and reddit users influencing the stock market. Marketplace helps you understand it all, will fact-based, approachable, and unbiased reporting.
