Here is my memo for Science and the city
The change of perspectives of Science – Modern Science – Open Science (Open Access) – Citizen Science
Two examples of Citizen Science projects:
– clear Air Coalition
– public Lab
Typologies of Citizen Science
Volunteer Computing, Volunteer Thinking, Volunteer Sensing (contributory volunteer thinking)
Ultimately, people go out and take the big data(=citizen science)
2/14: Teams, project design/project plan, 2/21: no class
molecular does not have intention and mind yet a city has. Physics, the analogy cannot be applied into real urban planning.
Cell is an organic analogy of a city yet cells are programmed to die yet city should not be died.
an insect colony(birds’ nest like is too simple for human lives)
Brain, Spinal cord Peripheral nerves
Eco-system can be applied as a city?
Communication network can be? – structure and functionality is different.
The central flaw of all of hess arguments is their emphasis on analogies of form rather than function, which limit their ability to help us understand and plan cities.” , Luis Bettencourt, 2000
