Science for the People: Cities of the Future

Around here I am a maker of pretty things and a complainer about other things that aren’t pretty enough for my tastes. In another life, I am an engineering researcher and science teacher. At CONvergence this year, those worlds collided a bit and I had the privilege of joining Desiree Schell, Jamie Bernstein and Shawn Lawrence Otto to discuss the fantasies and realities of our future cities.

The award winning* panel was recorded for Science for the People, a Canadian radio show and podcast that you should all listen to regularly.

*The “best panel” award was given by an unknown commenter with no official capacity, the actual plaque was created by me.
