More time for IoT policy
The US government has extended the public comment period for its green paper on the internet of things by two weeks.
The policy paper will take a broad look at the "potential benefits and challenges" of IoT and was announced at the start of April with a deadline of May 23. That has now been extended to June 2.
The department in charge - the same one that oversees the internet – is the National Telecommunications and Information Administration (NTIA). It said it was adding the extension "in response to feedback from some stakeholders".
Anyone can send their thoughts to the NTIA through a dedicated email address – firstname.lastname@example.org.
