Do you agree with the following? "Cities are getting smarter with the growth of ICTs and social media." Why or why not?
Not really

Being the city actually the people I think we are not. It is true we are producing massive amount of data and with it big amounts of software and hardware capable of processing it. But I think people´s general data literacy is way below processing and producing capability.
There are important sectors ofthe citizenship that do have these capabilites, but it is still a selected group. To me as long as technological literacy remains a priviledge cities will be...dumb?
Inclussion and dialog are the roads to smartness for living and inhert organisms.
