Jeremy Rifkin on 'The Internet of Things'Download audio (MP3)
From a washing machine that emails you when your clothes are done to smart door locks and Wi-Fi enabled dog collars that can track down a lost pet, Internet-connected objects and devices are on the rise.

Rifkin joins us to discuss his latest book, "The Zero Marginal Cost Society."
