To continue with introductions, our second trial blogger is Taylor Hokanson, who's helping us figure out just how much stuff in our home can be networked.
Above is a section of Home Theater Network's all-encompassing networking diagram. In addition to some fantastically goofy projects (like exchanging texts with your bread-maker or operating your oven via cellphone), this site provides an exhaustive visual guide to networking your home. On the site, you can click on areas of interest to learn more about cables, data standards, and device families.
