Jane Jacobs and the Center
The same year, the first iPhone was released and set the tone for a smartphone revolution that changed the way we experience, navigate and interact with our immediate urban environment. We are now living in increasingly data-rich environments where open data platforms allow us to access, collect and analyse information about the city. The amount of data generated by our daily activities and interactions will increase persistently, as digital devices continue to permeate our lives. And while we use those devices as a central access point to information, the data we generate on a daily basis — either directly or as a by-product of our social activities — is often associated with contextual meta-information about location, usage and people. In other words, data gives a valuable insight into both our social interactions and the environment that staged those interactions.
Jane Jacobs was an urban writer and activist who championed new, community-based approaches to planning for over 40 years. Her efforts to stop downtown expressways and protect local neighborhoods invigorated community-based urban activism and helped end Parks Commissioner Robert Moses's reign of power in New York City. Jacobs had no professional training in the field of city planning, nor did she hold the title of planner. Whyte , Jacobs led the way in advocating for a place-based, community-centered approach to urban planning , decades before such approaches were considered sensible. Jacobs was born in in the coal mining town of Scranton, Pennsylvania, the daughter of a doctor and a former school teacher and nurse. After graduating from high school, she took an unpaid position as the assistant to the women's page editor at the Scranton Tribune.

A Book Review of Jane Jacobs’ “Cities and the Wealth of Nations”
Considering the recent increase of socioeconomic segregation in cities worldwide, scholars of urban technology Carlo Ratti and Yang Xu put forward a new metric with which to study and counter such a phenomenon. While past research has focused on residential segregation, this article argues that segregation needs to be tracked more dynamically: across the urban environment and not just at home; through time and not just space; and by monitoring its presence in social space and not just physical space. These methods require more dynamic data as well: Ratti and Xu argue for the greater cost-effectiveness and possibilities presented by mobile-phone data. They conclude by speculating on some design actions cities could take to encourage greater mixing between different groups.
Look Inside. In this eye-opening work of economic theory, Jane Jacobs argues that it is cities—not nations—that are the drivers of wealth. Challenging centuries of economic orthodoxy, in Cities and the Wealth of Nations the beloved author contends that healthy cities are constantly evolving to replace imported goods with locally-produced alternatives, spurring a cycle of vibrant economic growth. Intelligently argued and drawing on examples from around the world and across the ages, here Jacobs radically changes the way we view our cities—and our entire economy. It is written with verve and humor; for a work of embattled theory, it is wonderfully concrete, and its leaps are breathtaking.

Это была предсмертная мольба. Энсей Танкадо незаметно кивнул, словно говоря:. И тут же весь обмяк. - Боже всемилостивый, - прошептал Джабба. Камера вдруг повернулась к укрытию Халохота. Убийцы там уже не. Подъехал полицейский на мотоцикле.
Беккер посмотрел внимательнее. В свете ламп дневного света он сумел разглядеть под красноватой припухлостью смутные следы каких-то слов, нацарапанных на ее руке. - Но глаза… твои глаза, - сказал Беккер, чувствуя себя круглым дураком. - Почему они такие красные. Она расхохоталась. - Я же сказала вам, что ревела навзрыд, опоздав на самолет.
Вам известно, что в Испании это противозаконно. - Nein, - солгал немец. - Я не. Я сейчас же отправлю ее домой.
АНБ пригласило Беккера, потому что имелось подозрение, что оригинал был написан на мандаринском диалекте китайского языка, и ему предстояло переводить иероглифы по мере их дешифровки. В течение двух часов Беккер переводил бесконечный поток китайских иероглифов. Но каждый раз, когда он предлагал перевод, дешифровщики в отчаянии качали головами.
