Smart Cities – VPro Tegenlicht documentary (2016)

Ahead of my talk this week to the city of Ghent (, watch this Dutch documentary I was in last year (my bits are in English/start ~17:30) in which I learned that the city of Amsterdam shares the license plate information of its citizens with Google (& their “CTO” sees no problem with it)

@aral I have seen this documentary last year. Was shocked by the evangelistic attitude of google people. Such an unnatural 'enthusiasm' without any critical thinking....makes me suspicious. By the way, we don't notice anything of citizens participation. Only more and more camera's in squares, shopping streets (Cisco) 😡and camera's in billboards even on railway stations, shopping centres (ExterionMedia) 😡
