Anatomy of a Smart City

Anatomy of a Smart City | BASIC VOWELS | Scoop.it

The 19th century was a century of empires, 20th century was a century of nation states and the 21st century will be a century of cities...

This outstanding infographic (courtesy of postscapes.com) begins with some information about our current state of urbanization.

Did you know that 1.3 million people are moving to cities each week?! It then explains the need for smart cities and delves into what is required to establish these intelligent connected environments, how the smart city may take various forms in the developing worlds and what specific technologies are necessary to achieve such grand goals in practice.

There is an evolution taking place where politics, policy, technology, the environment, and the economy all intersect. This movement towards technical, empirically driven local policy making could be our saving grace.This could be the future of government.

A stunning infographic which predicts how urban living will change in this century.  Our age is truly becoming "a century of smart cities."  Exciting times lie ahead.  Aloha, Russ.

Infographic: Is Your Job Killing You? @abroaderview | BASIC VOWELS | Scoop.it
It is no longer a joke, your job really could be killing you.

Stress is killing people at a astronomical rate these days, and these people are not doctors and lawyers. So it is no longer a joke, your job really could be killing you. I suggest we all take a moment to stop and think of ways to de-stress and how we can lower the stress of others.
