Thomas A. Bass, "Dress Code," Wired, April 1998
With the human body a “pretty good semi-conductor“ for bits travelling through it, Negroponte sees a day when our sneakers will deliver a signal to a watch or ring with a phone call.

Negroponte refers to the futuristic device as the "Innernet."
"It will do more than a watch-like monitor to make measurements," Negroponte said. "When I go to the doctor and say I don't feel well, it's like asking him to throw out a few darts and maybe he'll zero in on the problem. But if I can give him measurements from a monitor in my body, say for the last 24 to 48 hours, he could better diagnose what's wrong."
