The Internet of Places is a specialization of the Internet of Things. Personal places (like home) and intimate public places (like neighborhood) are comprised of “things”. Such place-things can be instrumentally empowered through sensors, data sharing, and computation, thereby exemplifying and contributing to the Internet of Things. But places are distinctively significant to people in sheltering, in anchoring memories, in evoking meanings, and in providing settings for social interactions and human development. To that extent, the Internet of Places should be analyzed as a special case, and an especially social case of the Internet of Things.
