Yippi-hoo! My neighborhood’s getting a connected street. I’m sure I’m supposed to do a happy dance. Maybe I should offer my heartfelt thanks to city planners. Except, when I first heard about this 11 million dollar project, I had no idea what it was or how it would actually help me!
I did what every curious, post-modern citizen must: I took a Google-dive. I read fantastic company produced blogs complete with slick Youtube videos. My fun-factor spun out of control. I knew I was feasting on marketing hype. So, armed with a new vocabulary, I set out to understand what’s really happening in my neighborhood.
