The Internet of Things

Blog, 24 March 2015

In the near future, we will be able to fully connect things like the thermostat, the refrigerator, the car and the sensors monitoring the movements of people detected in our house. Our telephone will soon be a complete library, nightclub, photo album and accounting system.

All of the issues that still tie us to our homes have been solved! Everyone can work full time and have a career, so there will be full equality in the boardroom. Women can reach the top. Men have no more excuses and can easily take over looking after the home and the family. There is less need for office space, which will free up valuable square footage for housing with plenty of services. Social media and intensive digital communication through free apps promote social cohesion.

We can live and work where we want, with the occasional appointment for some high-touch meeting, but only when absolutely necessary. In short: the individualization of society is in great shape. Big Brother is of course watching you, but that doesn’t really matter if you trust the government and aren't committing any crimes. Cyber-crime fighters are the new heroes.

Maes & Lunau can convince clients and candidates alike that there are no limits to the ever-growing digitization. Even if you live on the other side of the world, the opportunities are endless for those who want to work – virtually or physically – in our land of milk and honey.
