Musing About the City
Cities have been on my mind a lot lately. Having been a city dweller all my life, I like to think I understand the good and the bad of these large environments we cram ourselves into.
Thoughts have been poking towards the front of my brain. Questions, too. Questions like:
- Is the city as we know it sustainable?
- How can we make cities more liveable?
- Is the idea of the smart, connected city a good one?
- What options do we have going forward?
I'm no urban theorist. I'm definitely not a utopian. But those questions, those thoughts ricocheting through my brain just won't go away. I'm devoting quite a bit of mental energy to those questions and thoughts. I'm hoping to muse more coherently, more completely, and in an informed way about the city in 2020, maybe in my newsletter or in a short ebook.
