Peter Jasperse posted a wonderful link to a brilliant dutch blog. Its gems like this that make you really appreciate google translate. Peter wrote: The leading urban planner Zef Hemel, publishes daily on his blog about the latest developments in his profession. Short, sharp and insightfull posts, all in Dutch but with the help of Google Translate still worth reading for the rest of the world. In this particular post he writes about the impact of technology on cities: how they become more local, while staying global. He stresses the importance of Open Data, the role of city governments as facilitators, but most of all the creativity of the urban dwellers. Very much worth reading.
