In this paper, we tried to draw a fair assessment on things which will take place soon with the coming era of IoT, 5G technology, global eavesdropping and all that. Nonetheless, we are aware that this article sounds quite gloomy. We are not techno-utopians (read Evvgeny Morozov’s WSJ article on digital dictatorship1), but we are not techno-pessimists either. Perhaps you can consider us as: "techno-realists."2 This paper was written in the same spirit of Jonathan L. Zittrain’s book The Future of Internet and how to stop it.
