Can British cities learn from US ‘networked localism’? : RSA blogs

John Tropea - Delicious Collaboration

Can British cities learn from US ‘networked localism’? This process has been dubbed ‘networked localism’. So, for example, the Seattle Minimum Wage Task Force took evidence and exchanged ideas with city and business leaders from Chicago, San Francisco, New York, Philadelphia and San Jose. This raises obvious questions about the scope for networked cities in Britain. Economic networking between cities needn’t just be about geographical agglomeration.

Collecting insights

Viv Mcwaters

There was a lot happening at the Applied Improvisation Network Conference in San Francisco. As well as the pre-planned sessions, and the open space offerings, the one-on-one and small group conversations, and the serendipitous moments, there was the Twitter and Facebook back channel, photos being posted on Flickr, videos being made, drawings made, and people blogging. I tried to capture a small slice of the whole conference using Storify.
