I will be in Venice on the 25th to attend this event, as a part of the UrbanIxD project, a project I have been involved in the last year as a member of the Advisory Board.
The Data Revolution: Big Data, Open Data, Data Infrastructure and Their Consequences
Rob Kitchin´s new book is available! Looking very much forward reading it. Because we still need to keep asking questions about these topics beyond the hype.
Human data shows how we move in cities.
Human helps people move almost twice as much in six weeks. Every day, people track millions of activities with our app. We visualized 7.5 Million miles of activity in major cities all across the globe to get an insight into Human activity. Walking, running, cycling, and motorized transportation data tell us different stories.
The Responsive City: Engaging Communities Through Data-Smart Governance, by Susan Crawford and Stephen Goldsmith.
The Data Revolution: Big Data, Open Data, Data Infrastructures and Their Consequences by Rob Kitchin
A new forthcoming book by the great Rob Kitchin, another book I will read this year for sure.

The UrbanIxD project takes the view that cities in the future will contain a complex mesh of interconnected, heterogeneous technological systems. Technology will continue to evolve, and the data-reading and writing capabilites of cities will only increase, but mess and complexity will still be the background context.
The focus of the emergent field of Urban Interaction Design is public space and the relationships between people – with and through technology2. The currency of these interactions is data. Making sense of this data, and making it meaningful, transparent, useful and enjoyable is a challenge for interaction design.
The | City | Data | Future | exhibition speculates about the possible futures that city inhabitants might experience.
