Imagine your smartphone knew everything about the city – but the city didn’t know anything about you. Wouldn’t that be ‘smarter’ than our current surveillance dystopia?

This is a much better idea in terms of how you and your sphere of connectivity become inputs for a smart city. Instead of collecting data on you and other environmental factors, let you be the collector. Our cities would start to model themselves after our lifestyles, instead of requiring us to constantly adapt to meet their needs.
