City as Social Technology

A session at Microsoft Social Computing Symposium

Tuesday 12th January, 2010

9:00am to 9:30am (EST)

An attempt to bring together the various levels of the built environment (the home/office, the city etc) with the “Social computing” in the name of the event. The basic premise is that the city is an invented thing, designed to support, extend and derive value from human socialising, collaboration and labour - and that new pervasive technologies (sensors, programmable environments etc) are going to take all of that stuff to a completely new level...
