Intelligent Cities

The National Building Museum, Washington DC is running an initiative called Intelligent Cities. It's mainly aimed at Americans, but they do offer an option to input any country in their polls. I encourage all to participate. 

A new poll is launched periodically, and later this year they'll collate the data to form a comprehensive view of the public's view on their neighborhoods, cities, and regions. 

I originally read about this on UrbanOmnibus. They have an interview with the museum's Susan Piedmont-Palladino and Scott Kratz. I hope the project succeeds in generating discourse and yields meaningful data. Most importantly, I hope it isn't a case of preaching to the choir. Ads in Time magazine should help with that.
