Ep. 12: Peter Bihr - Ethics in the IoT / Thingscon
Peter Bihr - Ethics for the Internet of Things I was thinking for a long time on the title of this episode. No one short title would be enough. Peter Bihr does so many things in so many flavours. If you live in Berlin you would need to live under a rock not to be aware of some of the things that Peter is part of. I am happy to know Peter since years and whenever we meet, we have these great conversations on whatever topic. Peter, since ages, is writing about the impact of technology on society.

That lead to getting to know the community around the Internet of Things, which again led to organising the first Thingscon in Berlin. An epic experience in starting a conference, low on budget, high on energy and even the attention of Bruce Sterling. During the conversation, you will hear a lot about how Peter sees the world. And as I did not choose Peter by chance, you will hear a lot of things on how to start things off how to open things up for a larger community how to be inclusive how to have impact as a person or a small boutique how to work in early phases once things are in genesis so that your impact may still be there when things grow to utility But my favourite sentence remains: "Sometimes simply not being a dick is good business" Regarding not being a dick: Here a major publication by the Thingscon world: "Thingscon Report - the state of responsible IoT" And, yes, Peter also founded a small fashion business with his wife - Zephyr - which is all about clothes you can wear at work and at home in great, high tech fabrics which can take outdoor and sports abuse but don't look awkward at work. Many of the things I mentioned read like being general. I am sure that, after listening in, you get an insight on how you can mover the needle and how much you can influence you can have on your environmen
