Re: Open Thread

Unrelated to Odura's post, but I just thought I'd post the insane stories I've been seeing about different mega-tech-companies building their own cities:

Google's Sidewalk Lab's gigantic 800 acre project in Toronto

YCombinator looking to build new cities (plural), or at least improve existing ones

Bill Gates' spends a spare $80 million for controlling interest in smart city project in Arizona

Wonder how much silicon-valley-esque reinventing the wheel we'll be seeing. These are tech companies, not urban planning or architecture/engineering firms.
