The Responsive City: Open Data

November 10, 2014

Last week I went to a presentation at the City Club of Cleveland by Susan Crawford from the Berkman Center for the Internet and Society. She is the author of The Responsive City: Engaging Communities Through Data-Smart Governance.  Just a couple of gems from her presentation:

She sees 3 layers – Fiber, Sensors and Screens. That is, a layer of fiber as the backbone of the digital city, sensors everywhere to collect data about the city and screens to visualize data in ways that are meaningful for decision makers and citizens

  • “Data on the walls of the city” – again, making data available everywhere to improve the life in the city.  This brought to mind the opening of  Fulton Center in New York City – the transportation hub which has screens everywhere.

Worth following this topic and read her book.
