The Internet of Everything / Internet of Everywhere implies that a common, shared lexicon <names> naming convention for sensors, platforms, devices is needed.  Since IeT artifacts will tend to move across geo-spatially defined areas [space] over time, a simple, universal meme to measure and meter changes in location [space] over a given time will be needed.  Decision makers may want sums / totals at a given time interval – time stamp or they may simply want the change since the last time sample – a sync delta in military battlefield digitization speak. Measuring changes in count / distances over time in a linear, sequential format is addressed through a “Paul Revere” hop count meme using internet TCP/IP hops.
Measuring changes in a specific geo-spatial area – a Telco mesh fabric network for example is represented by a water drop in pond metaphor / meme used in conjunction with user selected beacon protocols or router multicast, unicast, any cast, newscast protocols. Metrics, measurements are sampled cyclically during micro-cycles then summed, aggregated during macro-cycle intervals then distributed as sync delta updates over a wide area to systems of systems to update dashboard views displaying standard symbol sets as dynamically increasing and decreasing intensity and event threshold conditions. Events / Alerts are filtered by event <classes> mapped to network precedence levels e.g., null, one, two, three, four – 5 level emulating geo-spatial radius expansion and contraction of disaster / event / alerts by multicast zones as concentric rings corresponding area zones in a equal level numeric temporal precedence framework shown as geo-spatial temporal threshold changes in appliqué overlay views in leader’s appliqué overlay dashboard, decision screen views.
Use of a common XML <tag> lexicon repository in conjunction with common metrics and measures should be integrated with the next generation internet Named-Data Network as a method to determine INTEREST by proximity, frequency, cyclic occurrence
