Ubicomp [ubiquitous computing] isn’t just part of our cities of the future. Its devices and services are already here. Think of the use of prepaid smart cards for use of public transport or the tags displayed in our cars to help regulate congestion charge pricing or the way in which corporations track and move goods around the world. These systems will expand geometrically over the next decade building the blocks for our future cities. The question is: what will we choose to build? A City of Control or a City of Trust?
