Let’s solve the issues of cities (and we’ll solve many of the problems of the world) - The Networked Society Blog | Economic Development | Scoop.it

By 2050, 70% of the world’s population will live in cities. In a megacity, the amount of people in itself creates an extreme environment in terms of how space and resources are employed, which drives cities to lead innovation. With the rapid urbanization, and the challenges that follow as a consequence, today’s cities are shaping our future – and probably more than whole countries do.

NTIA congratulates the winners of the 2013 Digital Cities awards, which recognize cities for the innovative use of technology to expand access to government services, promote citizen engagement, increase transparency, reduce costs and improve the lives of residents. The Center for Digital Government, a research and advisory firm focused on technology in state and local government, gave out the awards at the National League of Cities annual conference in Seattle last month.

 

NTIA is particularly pleased to note that a number of winning cities were lauded for projects and activities funded by our Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP). Over the past four years, the program has invested roughly $4 billion nationwide in network infrastructure, public computer centers and digital literacy training to help close the digital divide and ensure all Americans can benefit from the promise and potential of the Internet.
