  • cities are emergent systems
  • civilization as we know it is largely a byproduct
  • 50% of world population lives in cities 50% + of people live in cities and % is growing up

  • a complex system with many channels
  • “In my opportunistic cluster model,the bus stop I am standing in front of *is* the app. I open my phone and Im looking at what *this* bus stop has to offer”
