Guess who's back, back again ... James is back, so listen in!
So James is officially back after a bit of a hiatus from the podcast, and on this episode him and Rafal sit down over a fun interview with Matt Lewis Research Director for the UK with NCC Group. Matt is the primary author on a report on "Smart Cities", and it's definitely something you should read.
We talk about the report, discuss the true nature of a smart city and what it means to live in one. Pay particular attention to how difficult it was not to jump right into Die Hard 4 references... although we eventually broke down and did it anyway.
