Cities of Knowledge
20 November 2007
An International eGovernment/Public Sector Knowledge Management event, co-organised by Dublin City Council and DIT. The event is part of ICiNG (Innovative Cities for the Next Generation) which is a project funded through the European 6th Framework Research programme. It aims to develop effective e-communities and e-access to city administration. The project is based in Dublin, Barcelona, and Helsinki. Each city is providing â€˜City Laboratoryâ€™ test-bed sites in strategic development/city regeneration locations where users will trial and evaluate technologies and services.

I wonder of Kieran Rose of GLEN will be at it: he has been pushing the government to get more lgb friendly because research shows* it is a factor in developing vibrant, innovative cities.
*I know the limits of that phrase, but it will do for a comment in a blog!)
Ah I remember the other research which looked at discrimination and sexual orientation and poverty – now we are ‘developing vibrant, innovative cities’ of rich male queers interested in inaccessible buildings especially community centres and spending time sucking up to Mad mick and bertie.
