Anatomy of a Smart City

Anatomy of a Smart City | Help to Develop Cloud Marketing | 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.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, December 19, 2:10 AM

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.

Forrester's top 10 trends for mobile in 2013

Forrester's top 10 trends for mobile in 2013 | Help to Develop Cloud Marketing | Scoop.it

Mobile phones are already well on their way to replacing cameras, cash, maps, remote controls, handheld gaming systems, boarding passes, tickets, cash registers, calculators, notepads, and much more. And they’re becoming globally ubiquitous: 1.6 billion phones were shipped last year; and by the end of this year, 1.4 billion smartphones will be in use.

So the question is not so much what smartphones can do, it’s what can’t they do. And the strategic imperative for organizations is to understand how they are going to meet the challenge of that change.

A week after sharing its vision of the top 15 emerging technologies, Forrester shared its view of the near future of mobile in analyst Thomas Husson’s report, released today.

Here are the top 10 implications for mobile, according to Husson:

lauryn burkhalter's curator insight, February 20, 2013 4:46 PM

This is a challenge and an opportunity for organizations globally. However, there are still people who are not able to afford these seemingly ubiquitous tools. How can we provide the world with equal access to information?

 

Do people deserve the right to access? or is this something that they should own?

Alex Butler's comment, February 21, 2013 9:48 AM
This is a good point, however access is complex and we cannot make assumptions. For example NHS Direct data in the UK suggests that those most accessing health information from a smartphone device were actually from the lower socio economic groups with the phone the families only access to the internet. So we need to be cautious when dismissing groups of people from the mobile equation :-)

How the Internet has Changed in the Last 10 Years [Infographic]

How the Internet has Changed in the Last 10 Years [Infographic] | Help to Develop Cloud Marketing | Scoop.it
This infographic visualizes the spectacular rise of the Internet in the last 10 years and how some companies have failed to adapt to the changes.

Here’s an interesting infographic that has been making the rounds across social media for the last two weeks. It visualizes the spectacular rise of the Internet in just 10 years. In 2002, the Internet boasted 569 million users, which translated to 9.1% of the world’s population. In 2012, that number has gone through the roof: There are now 2.27 billion users, or 33% of the world’s population.

Another formidable stat is the amount of time people spend online — in 2002, it was only 46 minutes a day (about the time it took to download four songs); in 2012, it’s four hours a day.

This is definitely a major role for a community manager which is why I love learning about these two topics: community management and curation.  They are inseparable.  I think this is what makes the difference between a community that has members and a community that has ACTIVE members, which, of course, is the POINT!  Enjoy!

Google Now: Behind The Predictive Future Of Search | The Verge

Google Now: Behind The Predictive Future Of Search | The Verge | Help to Develop Cloud Marketing | Scoop.it

Excerpted from article:

"For decades, visions of the future have played with the magical possibilities of computers: they'll know where you are, what you want, and can access all the world's information with a simple voice prompt. That vision hasn't come to pass, yet, but features like Apple's Siri and Google Now offer a keyhole peek into a near future reality where your phone is more "Personal Assistant" than "Bar bet settler." The difference is that the former actually understands what you need while the latter is a blunt search instrument.

Robin Good: To create an effective landing page you need to pay attention to a lot of critical factors. From the layout and positioning of the graphic and text elements on it, to the language and communication style to use. Frequent mistakes include wanting to include too much stuff, providing too many links going off into different directions and not paying enough attention to small details which can make or break your credibility and reputation on the web.
