Civic hackers, open data proponents, and social technologists are developing open data portals and holding hackathons to provide grassroots complements and competitors. Like any complex technology, cities are assembled from component technologies, and they must be architected to learn – by being open and receptive to tomorrow’s disruptive technologies.
