I get that glassy-eyed look all the time, Kirsten! Absolutely love this Connected Cows story! I've been using it for explanations with my "disconnected" relatives since you mentioned it at the IIC quarterly meeting.

My favorite story involves parking meters. People can relate to the idea that connecting data on electronic parking meters to the web can enable drivers to find available parking spaces -- thus helping everyone to avoid circling round and round the city and wasting an unhappy amount of time and fuel.
