As I experience the postings from the participants in the cChallenge I am struck that they reveal all three perspectives from which we can view our intended changes.

My colleague Sean Esborn-Hargens of MetaIntegral has identified 10 Capitals that most [...]

Monocities. Living Cities. Integrated City. I encountered all those associations and descriptions of city activity in my visit to Russia in November 2017.
