  10. 10. XTHE INTELLIGENCE OF A CITY IS ON THE STREETS“Under the seeming disorder of the old city, wherever the old city is working successfully, is amarvelous order for maintaining the safety of the streets and the freedom of the city. It is acomplex order. Its essence is intricacy of sidewalk use, bringing with it a constant successionof eyes. This order is all composed of movement and change, and although it is life, not art,we may fancifully call it the art form of the city and liken it to the dance — not to a simple-minded precision dance with everyone kicking up at the same time, twirling in unison andbowing off en masse, but to an intricate ballet in which the individual dancers and ensemblesall have distinctive parts which miraculously reinforce each other and compose an orderlywhole.”THE UNKNOWN VARIABLES OF URBAN EQUATIONJane Jacobs, The Death and Life ofGreat American Cities

  12. 12. MORE THAN PASSIVE DATA COLLECTORS?Usman Haque en Surely theres a smarter approach tosmart cities?We, citizens, create and recreate our cities with every stepwe take, every conversation we have, every nod to aneighbor, every space we inhabit, every structure we erect,every transaction we make. A smart city should help usincrease these serendipitous connections. It should activelyand consciously enable us to contribute to data-making(rather than being mere consumers of it), and encourage usto make far better use of data thats already around us.Kurt Iverson en Mobile media and the strategies of urbancitizenship: discipline, responsibilisation, politicisation(...)different applications of social and mobile mediatechnologies will have different impacts on urban life,depending on the model of governance and stategies ofcitizenship they embody.ROLE OF CITIZENS IN THE DATA OCEAN
