Robin Chase "Building the cities of the future: People empowered (by technology)"
Cities were once constructed by the efforts of individuals, until the grand plans of master architects, and then city planning departments took over, making sense of the "chaos." The city of the future will be both globally connected and highly local and customized -- once again shaped primarily by the individuals living within it. This new power will include sustainable local economies and be thanks to the miracle of the Internet combined with fast, easy access it to through ubiquitous mobile devices and sensors throughout our environment.
