I read "Unauthorised Bread" by @doctorow in the Christmas edition of New Scientist. A 5-minutes-in-the-future story about an IOT failure. Loved it.

My Christmas preparations now apparently include poaching and immediately ice-bathing a dozen eggs the night of the 24th.

I hope this brightens up your day just a little to remember this wonderful fact.
