  56. 56. Design for Smarter Cities • Your citizens know more than you. • Don’t separate the design and development process • Embrace self-organization & civic initiative, but help to make the results sustainable and scalable. • Never rely on consultants that will sell consultancy, not solutions. • Have binding decisions made at the lowest level possible and actively preach self-governance. • Small, connected systems tend to fail sometimes; large systems will fail for sure. • Build systems based on reciprocity and transparency. • Reuse existing parts and design your additions for reuse, adding to the public domain and strengthening its capacity to act and learn. https://www.waag.org/nl/blog/design-rules-smarter-cities
