Your Internet Consultant - The FAQs of Life Online

11.10. That's cool! How do I put my refrigerator, television, porch lights, cat, whatever on the Internet?

I have no idea at all. And, sadly, as far as I know there isn't a FAQ document that tells how. I asked Andrew Sheaff (who hooked his office thermometer to the Net) whether he intended to write up some documentation divulging the tricks of the trade. He replied, "Kevin, I unfortunately have no intention of documenting how to connect things to the Internet. This was quite an involved project, which included writing assembly on a 68HC11, writing C code on a DEC3100, and a little bit of hardware construction." So, for now, the rest of us remain uninformed.
