I'm looking forward to smart cities. I'm guessing San Francisco will be one of the first up for that.

Oh heck yeah... can't wait for these things to spread beyond Vegas: http://www.storyleak.com/la...

Too bad Hollerith machines couldn't be hacked as easily as the stuff in Watch Dogs.

Seoul would most likely become the first truly smart city. Take a look at what they already have going on there and the plans for future development.

"You have an agent that watches the city — no different from the agent that watches you, but it’s vastly more powerful"

This is not exactly instilling confidence in people to trust devices like kinect, an be all for smart cities. Once again, the message is fumbled over private security.
