Anthony Townsend: Imagining the ubiquitous city

Via Howard Rheingold, links to a talk by NYU-based Fulbright Scholar Anthony Townsend on “the ubiquitous city,” a Korean vision of city life that is “efficient, convenient, safe and achieved through deployment of mobile, wireless and broadband technologies.”
Townsend says that Korea is a leader in creating new online social spaces and explains how a networked city will move virtual experiences offline and into the physical world. He identifies privacy as one issue to deal with, and wonders how ubiquitous computing–which is what this is–changes the value of urban spaces, particularly in Seoul. His preso is easy to read, has great graphics and is–compelling and smart.
