Sensor networks and social policy bonds
Here's a little paper, that I've been meaning to hack out since I wrote the notes in April on the train from Ubon Ratchathani and the Buddhist economics conference.
I probably haven't finished with it. Citysense which is pretty proprietary and limited: http://www.citysense.net/ is running in Boston. However, my feeling is for much less telemetry (less data) and more sensors.
It's all fairly Stafford Beery, but I'm a big admirer of systems over politics, far less posturing, things sort-of work or they don't.
