This essay focuses on the premise that all current global vertical institutions will break under the weight of the internet based actions of ever-growing groups of people organising themselves on all kinds of specific topics. The enabler of this new political and socio-economic reality has been called the Internet of Things. It will lend greater significance to sudden events or “black swans” and radically democratise societies in an environment where goods, things and people can be addressed in both analog and digital ways.
