Why you should be afraid of the Internet of Things

I first became excited about what eventually became the Internet of Things (aka IoT) back in the early 90s, after I wrote my first web server. I realized it was no more complex than a telnet server, so could easily replace the telnet servers in the few networked devices we had then. So we'd have point and click web configuration for those devices that was friendly and easy to use and that idea was just cool. These days, I'm mostly afraid of it.
