Cyborg Camp YVR 2013: Ryan Betts: “Cities eat Cyborgs.”

348

Published on

“Cities eat Cyborgs.”

Technology doesn’t change in cities, cities change technology. No matter how much we wish we could wave the wand of technology to fix civic and social issues, they are better restructured through slow processes: policy, regulation, zoning, and cultural programming. Cyborgs rush to cities, and the cities eat them alive.

Ryan is part Drummer, interaction designer, videographer and urban design enthusiast

  4. 4. Societies, as it happens, turn their backs on technologies all thetime, even some that seem to be at the very cusp of their accessionto prominence. Citizen initiatives have significantly shaped[technologies’] emergence -- and [their] commercial viability -- ... andthis has been the case even when groups of disconnected individualshave faced coherent, swaggeringly self-confident, and infinitelybetter-funded pro-technology lobbies.-Adam GreenfieldSunday, 12 May, 13
