El valor cívico de las aplicaciones móviles

El valor cívico de las aplicaciones móviles | Urban Life | Scoop.it

Como esta es la primera edición de URBAPPS, queremos empezar de forma abierta y seguro que en sesiones posteriores podemos focalizar más (en temas y tecnologías), pero siempre trabajando en aplicaciones para la sostenibilidad de la ciudad en términos amplios. Se trata de abordar la capacidad de movilización cívica que los usuarios de dispositivos móviles tienen a la hora de incidir en la identificación de problemas urbanos, en compartir experiencias, en el control ciudadano de datos públicos, en la generación de soluciones colectivas, etc.

10 Trends That Are Changing Cities Forever

10 Trends That Are Changing Cities Forever | Urban Life | Scoop.it

When it comes to technology and strategy, government is often behind the times, and far behind the most innovative businesses. It's slow-moving, risk-averse, and subject to many electoral and legal constraints.

Cities, on the other hand, move much faster. That was the subject of a recent panel hosted by SAP and the Brookings Institute, what Sean O'Brien, the Global Vice President Of Urban Matters and Public Security at SAP called the "secret sauce" of the best-run cities.
