Random readings on society, politics and change – Jorge Carrillo
For all the talk about smart cities a lot of dumb stuff happens in cities. Chicago can’t get a grip on police violence, Flint poisons its citizens with municipal water, Washington DC’s Metro subway is befallen by a series of mishaps and Baltimore can’t count its primary votes so that the State has to de-certify the election results.
Increasingly, humanity appears to find itself in a position where technology outruns policy and goal setting. When it comes to the smart city, in spite of all the talk about the big data, one has to search a long time to find mayors, departments or administrations who have begun to actually address the policy and governance issues or who have appointed anybody in charge 0f those imminent technologies. That is not only not promising but a real threat to a sustainable future.
