Does any city you know have a plan to become a smart city?
Satisfaction with the status-quo
Mar 16, 2015 Joseph S49

One of last week's readings mentioned that municipal decision-makers will not do anything differently unless they are dissatisfied with the status quo. This highlights the importance of individuals who make up the city, that an individual will be involved in the decision, and if they are unhappy in their job, poorly motivated, or primarily interested in their own ease of life, they will probably not expose themselves to personal risk, personal stress, personal time and effort exertion, and the city will stay as it is.

I strongly believe that the Smart City in Africa will come primarily through modular changes by the private sector (fibre by some companies, cycle routes through cycle associations, etc) and not from a government marked by corruption, nepotism, inept hiring systems and self-interest.
