LINK] After Discovery Channel acquired TLC and began to invest in first-run programming, we knew that Connections, with James Burke was a knockout concept, had been a winner in the PBS system in the late 70's, and still had a core of devoted fans.
There was a BBC Tele series on many years ago called Connections, and was hosted by James Burke. It's idea is: "...Connections explores an Alternative View of Change (the subtitle of the series) that rejects the conventional linear and teleological view of historical progress. Burke contends that one cannot consider the development of any particular piece of the modern world in isolation ... The series was noted for Burke's crisp and enthusiastic presentation...and dry humour, historical re-enactments, and intricate working models. (1978 Top Documentary Films. no date. LINK) ..."
Our Internet of Things has a gestalt-like path, more like a perfect Project Management example, where every task is connected to every other task. The ultimate Project Management Job: from earth dust to stalwart rigs, a completely interconnected human made super electrified supply chain, that feeds on itself eternally, is built.
THE INTERNET OF EVERYTHING: 2014 [SLIDE DECK] SAI - Business Insider: "The age of Internet ubiquity has arrived.

Side note: "...The Business Insider site editors vary greatly in background. Henry Blodget, a Yale graduate who previously worked on Wall Street, then was fined $2,000,000 as part of a civil suit for fraud, and another $2,000,000 in disgorgement, and being censured and barred from the securities industry by the Securities and Exchange Commission, is the CEO and Editor-In-Chief of Business Insider.

One has to wonder, eh, wouldn't an Electro-Magnetic-Pulse Bomb take out our entire electronic configuration? So why is everything being based on an electronic controls scheme?
"...[E]lectromagnetic pulses are the ultimate weapon against anything electronic — from telephone wires to the power grid to the computer chips that control cars, planes, and smartphones. Weaponized EMPs generally come in two forms: nuclear and non-nuclear. Non-nuclear EMPs are fairly weak, on the order of one million times weaker than their nuclear counterparts, ...the nuke distorts Earth’s magnetic field, basically ...

The conclusion to this bit is the story itself. MooPig Everything is Everything Department has suggested that humanity has finally imploded at its current 7 billion strong benchmark. Implosion in this case means "making the world smaller."
Also, in conclusion, the video series Connections with James Burke is still just about the most entertaining, and intertwining, non-fiction production that now can be viewed online by everyone in the world.
And, in conclusion, a censured and barred huckster guilty of fraud on Wall Street, Henry Blodget is CEO of Business Insider, a superb example of internet journalism.
That in conclusion would lead military of super power nations to develop Electromagnetic Pulse Bombs as a means of securing their own developments of Internet of Things.
