Episode Info:

In this second part of a two-part episode of the Spaces and Places podcast, Lauren and Aaron continue to chat with the bow-tie wearing Bob Bennett, smart city expert and former Kansas City Chief Innovation Officer, about what smart cities look like, how they operate and how we can get there, realistically. The trio discusses the surprising value of silos within organizations and departments as they allow for expertise, but Bob says if we aren't knocking down walls, we need to install windows so that experience and expertise can be shared. Bob goes on to explain that cities aren't that different than factories (based on a statement by Quito, Equador Mayor, Mauricio Rodas Espinel) and technology doesn't replace the people in these operations but instead makes them run much better. We don't want to give away all the soundbytes, and there's really too many to list!, so press play below to finish the conversation with Lauren, Aaron and Bob! "We’re not going to get there unless we get there together." - Bob Bennett Did you miss part one?
