Hack to learn!
Hacking the city follows the philosophy hack to learn, step in and rewrite the code set of the city to modify the operation of it. Sharing, open, decentralized, free access and improving the environment are principles that complement the focus of tactical planning in the city.

The neighborhood is the basic building block of human civilization - how to enliven it?
Over the years I’ve developed a catalog of one-line utterances that are 99% effective in terms of replacing urban anonymity with affection. I’ve tested each line thousands of times over thousands of blocks across multiple cities. Samples include:
“That’s a good-looking dog.” (said to someone approaching with a dog)
“That’s a good-looking duo.” (said to someone approaching with two dogs)
“That’s a good-looking wolfpack.” (said to someone approaching with three or more dogs)
“That looks pretty cozy.” (said to someone pushing a baby carriage)
“It must be nice to have a little helper.” (said to someone with a kid pushing a carriage or helping in another way)
“That’s a good pace.” (said to someone jogging past)
“It’s a good day for a ride.” (said to someone biking past)
“It’s a good day for a skate.” (said to someone skating past)
“That’s a good parking-spot.” (said to someone exiting a car)
“It’s a nice day for a picnic.” (said to someone eating on a bench, blanket, or doorstep)
“It’s a nice day to have the feet out.” (said to someone resting their bare feet)
“I hope the pizza pie stays warm.” (said to someone holding a pizza box)
“They say carrying bags is good exercise.” (said to someone holding heavy bags)
“That looks like a handy cart.” (said to someone pushing a handcart)
“That’s a good spot for a text.” (said to someone typing a message)
“Safe travels.” (said to someone wheeling a suitcase)
