"The 8 Smartest Cities In Latin America"

Which cities in the region are leading the way toward becoming urban centers of innovation and using technology and civic policy to create better lives for their citizens? As I've written before, all smart cities are on the journey towards being smarter, but none of them have arrived. This statement could not be more true when discussing smart cities in Latin America. I must admit I have a soft spot for the region. For the past two years, I have lived in two of the top 10 cities, and visited several others frequently. But Latin America is still a developing region and this list is primarily made up of cities in developing countries, unlike the rankings for North AmericaAsia/Pacific, and Europe. Therefore, most of these cities have major problems with traffic, contamination, government inefficiency, and much less transparency than you’d find in leading cities in more developed regions. Latin American cities also have a bad track record in proper land use and urban planning.

Having said that, all of the cities on this list are making strides towards becoming more efficient, cleaner, more innovative, and yes, smarter.

Disrupt Cities "Humor & Irony ON Urban Art"




creativity & Design



Filthy Luker, stage name of Luke Egan, is an artist from Bristol, known for his works of urban art. His pieces are dynamic and dark site specific three dimensional interventions, laden with irony, reinvent the function of everyday objects or add details unsettling, creating dialogue with the surrounding environment, in order to confuse passers-by and a laugh or a look of astonishment.

"Your body language shapes who you are" 

 Amy Cuddy at TED



Body language affects how others see us, but it may also change how we see ourselves. 


Social psychologist Amy Cuddy shows how "power posing" — standing in a posture of confidence, even when we don't feel confident — can affect testosterone and cortisol levels in the brain, and might even have an impact on our chances for success.

Excellence for Water Technology

The Countries vying to be the Centres of Excellence for Water Technology

By Will Henley via theguardian.com

Countries and cities around the world are competing to play host to the world's most innovative sustainable water companies

The technocrats of Masdar could hardly be accused of a lack of ambition. The five-year-old Masdar City in Abu Dhabi, which aims to be the world's first zero-carbon city, aspires also to be a global centre of excellence for innovative clean-tech water companies.
"Masdar can be the Silicon Valley of water," says Mohammed El Ramahi, Masdar's head of utilities and asset management. He is certain that this part of the Middle East can be to water what California is to the microchip.
With predictions that the water tech industry – covering desalination, purification, recycling, rainwater collection and hydro-electricity – will be worth $1tn by 2020, it is perhaps no surprise that Abu Dhabi wants in on the action.

Berlin Wall & 25 years after the fall of Communism

Berlin Wall & 25 years after the fall of Communism 

by  Jeri Laber via opendemocracy.net (CC BY NC)


Twenty-five years ago, in November 1989, the Berlin Wall fell.  Over the course of one weekend, some two million jubilant East Germans breached the Wall and crossed into West Berlin to greet family, friends and countrymen from whom they had been forcibly separated for more than twenty-eight years. The East German Communist leaders had lost control. Border guards, instructed to shoot anyone trying to cross the wall, held their fire.


The fall of the Wall came to symbolize the monumental year of 1989, when Communism collapsed in six countries whose systems had been considered immutable: Poland, Hungary, East Germany, Czechoslovakia, Bulgaria and Romania. Hundreds of thousands of demonstrators brought about this change.
