Deploying the smart city also has explicitly spatial consequences. In India, for example, a recent lecture by Ayona Datta (Nov 2016) at Newcastle University demonstrated that the rehabilitation of existing cities into smart cities has been associated with gentrification and mobilisation of young middle-class values rather than social equity, supported by governance practices that resembled more Foucault’s governmentality ( see Swyngedouw 2005 ) than truly open public engagement. The construction of the smart city could be likened to David Harvey’s account of Baron Hausmanns’ total reconstruction of Paris, a grand socio-technological and political project which channelled massive capital accumulation by sanitizing the French capital both socially and physically, erasing the possibility of future social unrest within the city. As Ayona Datta argued in her presentation, however, there is no one single manifestation of the smart city: only global discourses that take root locally in many different ways, pervaded and appropriated by local socio-cultural and political dynamics.

While laudable, the smart resilient city utopia seems to fall short of its lofty transformative ambitions. Urban resilience faces an important gap between theory and practice , because unsustainable practices have actually been among the most resilient to date (e.g. corruption, unsustainable resource extraction, unequal development…). As argued by Lorenzo Chelleri (2016), the Sheer Wrap Orchid Melody 5 by VIDA VIDA XdqNFLDm1f
is affected by: i) short-term benefits and quick-fixes as opposed to long-term solutions; ii) focusing on single measures (e.g. planting urban trees) rather than systematic, comprehensive approaches that address resilience of the whole urban system; and iii) unequal participation of stakeholders in the governance of the smart city. Lorenzo Chelleri argues with a pinch of humour that communities should probably become resilient to carbon-washing … Future research could tell whether the digital engagement practices that support the governance of smart cities (see for e.g. hackathons , mapathons , smartathons , social media and many other digital forms of public engagement ) will enable local communities to effectively address climate change, as suggested by Chandrima Mukhopadhyay .

Some cities are beginning to address resilience differently. For the City of Boston, for example, resilience starts by addressing race and equity . Resilience, beyond its co-optation by the global smart city project, refers first and foremost to bouncing back from shocks and crises, which may stand in the background of technological development. Particularly, technological innovation may fall short of supporting disaster relief purposes. The use of newly-launched Google Earth in the Katrina hurricane disaster in New Orleans: the maps of devastated areas reflected clear socio-economic/racial boundaries in the city. The need to address socio-cultural inequalities is central to the smart, resilient, sustainable city.

The Rockets took a shooting slump to a new level on Monday night.

After shooting over 35 percent from 3-point range during the season, the Rockets went ice cold. No matter how hard they tried, the 3-pointers simply stopped falling.

The Rockets missed 27 straight attempts from 3-point range during their Game 7 loss to Golden State. According to Elias Sports Bureau, it was the most consecutive missed 3s in NBA playoff history.

The Rockets at one point had missed 27 straight 3-pt FG tonight. tells us that's the most consecutive missed 3s in a playoff game in NBA history.

— ESPN Stats Info (@ESPNStatsInfo)

It was also incredibly unlikely. According to Sixers analytics writer Eric Sidewater, the odds of a good 3-point shooting team like Houston going that cold were absurdly slim.

The likelihood of the Rockets, a 36.2% three-point shooting team, missing 26 threes in a row is .00084% or a 1 in 118757 chance.

— Eric Sidewater (@SixersScience)

It was a 1-in-118,757 chance for the Rockets to miss 26 straight 3s, and they ended up missing 27 in a row. It was ridiculous, which justifiably led to plenty of mocking from NBA fans.

First Round Review
My Lessons from Interviewing 400+ Engineers Over Three Startups
Thank you!

Marco Rogers loves interviewing engineers. Here’s a quick back-of-the-napkin showing just how much: he’s been an engineering leader and hiring manager for the last seven years. Over that time, he’s hired over 80 engineers. To fill each of those roles, he’s personally interviewed approximately 5 candidates on average after initial phone screens. That’s at least 400 interviews, or an in-person interview every work week for seven years — and that’s not counting time dedicated to prep, screening, references or debriefs. Most impressive is that he’s designed a system that has gotten his technical teams involved — and energized — to interview their future colleagues. To him, interviewing is a team priority: engineers on his team who are seasoned interviewers can conduct 12-16 interviews per month.

‘Give Away Your Legos’ and Other Commandments for Scaling Startups


For those who’ve seen him in action, it’s inevitable that Rogers ended up at a recruiting software startup like Lever . Every engineering leader spends time on building and rebuilding teams, but while at Clover Health and Yammer , Rogers obsessed on designing and refining an immaculate interview process. It was that craftsmanship that helped him hire over a dozen developers at Yammer, grow the Clover engineering team from one to 50, and start to scale up Lever’s technical team.

In this exclusive interview, Rogers starts by debunking some of the common recruiting tropes, explaining why they are outdated or misleading. Then he spotlights his top four interviewing practices — and how they fit within his broader recruiting methodology. Lastly, he recommends the first, low-hanging change that startups can make to retrofit their interview process.

THE REFRAIN : “We test the technical knowledge and skills needed for the role in the interview.”


THE REALITY : You don’t actually know what you need. You’re figuring out what you need.
