Tom Murray in the New York Times

Natalie Kitroeff of the New York Times wrote about Senior Industrial Designer Tom Murray’s experimentation with Twine, the sensor-embedded box, and how he used it to graph the real-time temperature in his apartment to persuade his landlord to move him to a unit with working air conditioning. (Read more about it in the Accelerator post, “How the Internet of Things Is Changing Industrial Design.”) The anecdote was part of a trend piece, “Home Tweet Home,” in the Times’ Real Estate section that looked at how people are “using the Internet and high-tech solutions to deal with the challenges of home life.”
