SMART CITIES
Significant potentisl ... but not easy to accomplish



The Emerging Smart City

The Emerging Smart City
Cities are incredibly complicated with millions of systems serving the population ... with little or no meaningful coordination.
Most cities have grown organically over a very long time with only very rudimentary planning ... and in many cases planning with purpose that has been anti-social rather than pro-society.
But some change is happening.
It is anticipated that more than 80% of the world's population will live in urban settings in the very near future.
It is also likely that many major coastal cities will suffer more and more flooding as climate changes and sea level rises.

The Emerging Smart City
It is entirely possible that the smartest thing that we can do is to use smart technology to enable accountability because one of the biggest constraints on sustainable progress is anti-social behavior by key actors. There has been really weak accountability for a very long time, and it is one of the reasons for the disconnect between what technology makes possible and what technology accomplishes.

TrueValueMetrics (TVM) is an Open Source / Open Knowledge initiative. It has been funded by family and friends plus donations from well wishers who understand the importance of accountability and getting the management metrics right. TVM is a 'big idea' that has the potential to be a game changer leveling the playing field so the wealth and power is shared on a more reasonable basis between people who work for a living and those that own the economy and the levers of power. In order to be effective, it cannot be funded in the conventional way with a for profit business plan, but absolutely must remain an open access initiative.
WE WANT TO MAINTAIN AN OPEN KNOWLEDGE MODEL
A MODEST DONATION WILL HELP MAKE THAT HAPPEN
