Self-Aware Cities

(this image was 'borrowed' from io9)

Check out this article that came out on io9 a short while ago about living cities.

"Could a billion urbanized human beings help to create a system so agile, it becomes a living mind in its own right?"

This brings to mind the Puppet Master character from Ghost in the Shell and, of course, Neuromancer.  But, honestly,  I can't even begin to talk about what insights they bring up.  Read it!
