Digital technologies will not help with municipal governance challenges unless we make it so

One vision of what “smart cities” will become, via The Atlantic:

The “bad part of town” will be full of algorithms that shuffle you straight from high-school detention into the prison system. The rich part of town will get mirror-glassed limos that breeze through the smart red lights to seamlessly deliver the aristocracy from curb into penthouse.

… People could have it otherwise, technically, if they really wanted it and had the political will, but they don’t. So they won’t get it.
