Designing for Sub Communities Online or offline, when you're building tools for communities it's important to remember that as it grows, subcommunities are going to emerge. Some useful questions to ask: How can you create a sense of intimacy while still providing a connection to a bigger context? What is that bigger context, the reason for the community existing in the first place? How many different ways can people be a part of that bigger context? Can you encourage cross-subcommunity interactions? Can you discourage subcommunities from operating as complete silos?

This afternoon our colleagues at Atlantic LIVE announced an ambitious new event that everyone here in our offices is understandably excited about: "CityLab: Urban Solutions to Global Challenges," coming this October from The Aspen Institute, The Atlantic, and Bloomberg Philanthropies, is a two-and-a-half day summit designed to bring together city leaders from around the world for a series of conversations about the big ideas, experiments, and innovations that are currently shaping the world's cities. The staff of The Atlantic Cities knows all too well how a small experiment in a single city can quickly spread and change the way we all live, so we're pretty psyched to see this event start to come together. In that same spirit, over the next few months you're going to see a handful of new regular features appear on the site that reflect our enthusiasm for the city-as-laboratory. But before we can get started, we're going to need your help.

Complexity theory has been around for a generation now, but most people don’t understand it. I often read or listen to consultants, ‘experts’ and media people who proffer ludicrously simplistic ‘solutions’ to complex predicaments. Since it seems most people would prefer things to be simple, these ‘experts’ always seem to have an uncritical audience. Because most of what’s written about complexity theory is dense, academic and/or expensive, I thought I’d try to summarize the key points of complexity theory (focusing on the social/ecological aspects of it, not the mathematical/scientific ones) using lots of examples for clarity, and in a way that might be used practically by those grappling with complex issues and challenges. Complexity theory argues that simple, complicated, complex and chaotic systems have fundamentally different properties, and therefore different approaches and processes are needed when dealing with issues and challenges in each of these types of systems.

The data may be used by citizens, businesses, universities, academies, research facilities or municipal administration. The data on offer is ready to be used freely at no cost. The data published during the project is mainly statistical, giving a comprehensive and diverse outlook on different urban phenomena, such as living conditions, economics and well-being, employment and transport. A good proportion of the data material offered by the project is GIS based. The project includes building a web service for fast and easy access to open data sources. Users can download information and use it in decision-making, utilise it in their applications, or develop entirely new services based on the information, to name just a few examples.
