My hopes for a smart city would be one that is building solid long term smarts into its infrastructure, and not cutting corners or thinking too short-sited. It's hard to think of an institution more susceptible to technical debt than a city.

My smart city would expose solid sturdy APIs, respond to failure and build resilient systems, and act with the humbleness that they are not building any silver bullets.
