The Smart City Conspiracy revealed


"Smart City is a place where you experience a broad conspiracy that seems deliberately articulated to make your life better. "

“The Smart City concept is so vast and abstract that a complete, precise understanding can only be obtained if several definitions, from different authors, backgrounds and dates are analysed together. Hollands stated that: “… we know surprisingly little about so- called smart cities, particularly in terms of what the label ideologically reveals as well as hides” (2008).”

When “controllers” get together and aim - in part - to make your life better chances are in large measure that won’t happen.
