Cities are complex organisms, but lived life is much more than coordination and safety. How should the Future Internet support "the other half", which is hardly less complex? Building on research within the Center for Digital Urban Living (www.digitalurbanliving.dk), from journalism and civic communication to media architecture and cultural experiences, Martin Brynskov will outline some core opportunities and challenges we face as city planning becomes increasingly digitised and dynamic.
