Welcome to Tech Town

Interesting article on the future of Towns and Cities in the Drum Magazine – and I don’t just say that because I’m quoted in it!

A couple of key talking points on future cities:

  1. The Future city will look a lot like the current city
  2. It will be a lot more efficient – in many sense, including energy, less congested, more and relevant
  3. The quality of the built environment will become even more important, not less
  4. ‘Smartness’ will depend on the smart use of data by cities and citizens
  5. Personalisation will allow us to tailor our urban experiences in new ways
  6. The flip side is that cities will no longer be shared experiences in the way they used to be

I will do a series of blog posts over the next few months going into these points in greater detail. Let me know what you’re interested in!
