The ubiquitous city

I don't think we need to build a complete new city, like New Songdo in Korea, in order to able to experiment with new technology facilitating everyday life, but cultural differences will definitely be a barrier for similar innovation in the US and Europe. It will take a while before ignorance and politics will be overcome....

"In the West, ubiquitous computing is a controversial idea that raises privacy concerns and the specter of a surveillance society. (They'll know whether I recycled my Coke bottle?!) But in Asia the concept is viewed as an opportunity to show off technological prowess and attract foreign investment."
