We’re already building the metropolis of the future—green, wired, even helpful. Now critics are starting to ask whether we’ll really want to live there.
"The ultimate vision is a city that is hyperefficient, easy to navigate, and free of waste"
Cities have always been a place where you could lose yourself. Now with all this smart crap it'll just be another place you'll be monitored and sold crap to more efficiently. How do you protest the creepy aspects of this without rejecting the positive aspects of technology? I'm glad we're having this discussion, but with face recognition technologies springing up and data bases of what one "likes", I'm not sure there's much we can do.
I agree Thayer well said.
Technological sheep herding.
