We are questioning the property, benefits and investments in cities
Is unplugged profitable or non-profitable?
Private + Finance > Communitarian + Socio-Econ.
Global North > Global South
Cities > urban spaces in permanent conflicts of interest (Harvey)
Smart city > self-promotional examples
Being digitally connected > is not guarantee of being smart
Anticipated and invigorated as free and emergent processes rather than controlled and normative
Infrastructure-centered > People-centered
DIY for urban design
People attention matter more than ever

Part IV
Wrapping Up

1. Will #unplugging be a right or a privilege of a few?

2. Can the function of the Smart City be understood as a proxy of a community?

3. Will these devices serve citizens more than the citizens serve the devices?

4. Are there experimental governance alternatives that embrace bottom-up and emergent strategic planning and are considered real possibilities?

5. How realistic is it to combine an open access civilian deliberative system within a confidential, espionage-obsessed paradigm?

6. In the context of hyper-connected societies are citizens losing their ability to maintain social face-to-face relations?

7. To what extent can context collapse enable new opportunities for social capital?

8. Will technological devices be designed based on peoples needs more than on corporate or infrastructure interests?

9. Will the socio-political establishment suffer any shift towards free and community-driven processes?

10. Finally, will the political economy of the Smart City be altered as a consequence of changes among stakeholder interactions?

To what extent are hyper-connected societies provoking the lost of the face-to-face interactions among humans in favour of digitally mediated artificial relations?

Will #unplugging be a right or a privilege of a few?
