Vic Sussman on Larry King Live (Transcript)

Wednesday, May 31st, 2006

I remember watching Vic on Larry King with the vice president. Al Gore is a huge dude, and Larry’s desk is small, so they were all crammed in right next to each other. Vic did what he could to bring up the difficult questions :)

I would love to find the video of this so I could post it on YouTube. This is just some of the transcript.

“To become a member of the Internet of Things”

Friday, May 26th, 2006

I would like a word that means “to become part of the Internet of Things.” Hopefully the Web’s next generation can do better than “Web-ify,” (ugh) and “go digital” doesn’t cover it.

I need a single verb that means “go digital, go wireless, go mobile, become automated, begin writing log files about activity, provide surveillance capabilities, become extensible, become standardized, and become platform-independent.”
