Warren Karlenzig - Collective Intelligence: Cities as Global Sustainability Platform - TEDxMission - YouTube

Cities will anticipate new risks with rapid urban systems innovation based upon crowdsourcing, virtual and physical communities, and transparent markets sensitive to full carbon and resource costs. Creatively leveraging collective intelligence for clean energy, low carbon mobility and sustainable food and water, the new urban grid will enable high local quality of life, lifelong learning and vibrant green economies.

This talk looks at the environmental consequences of ubiquitous media and the rapidly changing technologies. The network of stories about metals, plastics, oil, nuclear and toxic waste is a depressing tale to tell but points towards a new kind of aesthetic politics which might yet save both humans and environments.
