Here's what smart cities do to stay ahead

Here's what smart cities do to stay ahead | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
Smart cities create a symbiosis between information, the Internet of Things and technologies to make better decisions and provide desired services. These cities map community preferences to improve services and infrastructure including public transport, libraries and waste services. They use sensors, Bluetooth and iPhones to track conditions and activities and send awareness messages ahead of emerging problems and disasters.

Karen Dietz's curator insight, February 22, 5:31 PM

Part of my Transformational Storytelling System for businesses and leaders focuses on the ability to use storytelling to transform yourself, your company, your community -- or bigger systems like the world.

 

In order to be effective in transforming culture/community/world, awareness needs to be built around the narratives regarding business, economics, debt, power, etc. that we are all immersed in.

 

Here's a blog post that really starts talking about these narratives, offers ideas for creating shifts, and an approach to use. It's just an overview, but there are links to follow and explore more.

This relates to what we have discussed in class about culture because it mentions that the people are separated into different categories that are set by wealth and also by what the believe. I believe this article is very insightful about what the true meaning of proverty being reduced was just a fix. It is set at a superficial level. Also it talks about how it will have a "design science" for social change which i find very intriguing.
Hunter Reynolds's curator insight, Today, 4:38 PM
We are all a part in our culture and this really relates to our chapter. I thought that this article had a good message that we are a part in our culture. This is an obvious thought but a true one. We can make changes if we work hard enough. This relates to our unit because we are learning about different cultures and everyone there is a part of it.

Saatchi gallery to explore the idea of selfies as art

Saatchi gallery to explore the idea of selfies as art | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
Art has now become a medium of infinite possibilities it seems, far past the paintbrush and canvas - now livestreams, live performance, and even selfies have the ability to name themselves as art. That's partially due to the fact 'art' in itself is such a vague term, meaning there's always space to challenge and re-interpret the term under new lights.

National Park Service launches unofficial Twitter account that Donald Trump can’t touch

National Park Service launches unofficial Twitter account that Donald Trump can’t touch | Museums and emerging technologies | Scoop.it
The unofficial National Park Service account started six hours ago by reposting the Badlands tweets that had been deleted. It’s since continued posting all the climate change data it can find, and it’s been documenting Trump’s strange attempts at cracking down on the official accounts. This unofficial Twitter account has quickly gained ninety thousand followers (likely a lot more by the time you’re reading this), as Americans are flocking to the account to keep up with the real National Park Service news....
