Screens have formed the foundation of our experience with connected content, and information exchange agreements adhere to this comfortable arrangement. While the addition of screens, tabs, and apps complicated information collection and privacy, a lack of screens promises to further complicate the arrangement. Notice and choice, wherein an information collector notified information subjects of what would be gathered and how it would processed, is incredibly challenging in a screen world and is even more challenging in a smart world without screens. The focus of the essay is not on individuals operating with a screen, nor on the initial operator of a device in the smart world that may adapt information and use settings or agree to terms of service found in the box the product was delivered in, but on everyone else that may be exposed to numerous smart devices in a smart world. It focuses on information preferences in the internet of other people’s things.
