The “Internet of Things” and the involvement of those sort of things in home security is a big thing these days. Because of the surprise of context switch with this image I received from Rolf a while back I thought it was very funny:

    In perusing the question, “If this is a metaphor, then it is a metaphor for…what?” I have looked at caliber and platform selection, bullet-making and sizing, load development and testing, and practice as very much a typology of a system of communication for some time now, and the implications abound and seem to grow.

    Is it a joke? Funny as it may be, the comedy is serious business. Certainly the forces of darkness have been taking it very seriously, to the extent that they’re ready and willing to kill over it.
