Oh, the smart city. I have “previous” here, over about a decade of writing about the interplay between cities and technology. And particularly, having written about The Street As Platform, and thePersonal Well-Tempered Environment, and The Adaptive City, and about New Songdo City, and "new smokestacks", and how it’s easier to crowd-source a revolution than a light-rail system, and so on. And then worked on many projects, which I hope to scribble more about one day here, from Barangaroo to Brickstarter, Masdar to Melbourne.

The CCD is expected to advance the country’s leadership position in media by using technology to create a socially integrated urban environment that can attract those working in advertising, gaming, movies, television, and related fields. Housing, recreational areas, educational and cultural institutions, retail stores, restaurants, and hotels are part of the project.

 

Guadalajara began the development efforts in October in a 40-hectare area downtown it calls the Digital Hub. Eventually, the CCD is expected to expand beyond the downtown and cover some 380 hectares....
