My opinion: All decisions should be run through a lens of “will this action benefit my future self and future generations?”
If not, then I think we are wasting our own youth, and our children's options for a thriving future. Climate change or not, why are we actively polluting our seas, rivers, drinking water, and food supply for just another dollar today?
Smart Cities of the future are going to take well thought-out neighborhood culture with flexibly adaptable smart homes which require even smarter residents to create wealth independent from the macro whole, and coordinated in a distributed and localized fashion.
Orderly Chaos is a wholly bottom up approach to organizing the engineering in strategic, top down, way.
We are an Armada of entrepreneurs.
Culture is King, and it takes each and every one of us driving our independent ships in the same general direction.
