How to build a Digital City
The textbook on software infrastructure and the notion of citizen dashboards to be utilized in a pilot project in Northern Ohio!
by Marc Canter - CEO, Digital City Mechanics for EECS 396 CWRU - Fall semester '09
This is the textbook I'll be using to teach my class EECS 396 at CWRU =- fall '09.
I welcome all to attend the class, though it'll get pretty geeky. But business school types who wanna go on-line should probably think about taking this course.
I take the theory of my manifesto "How to build the Open Mesh" and put it into practice.
So this is a step by step guide in how to develop a software infrastructure for a Digital City. We will iterate this book during the term of the course.
I've now created three books up on Blurb: - a manifesto for distributed architectures - a textbook on how to build a software infrastructure for digital cities - documentation of a summer internship program I'm a 25+ year veteran of the software business and father of five. I've just moved to Cleveland, Ohio to take my theory and turn it into practice. In an earlier life I started a company called MacroMind which became Macromedia. I helped invent multimedia authoring tools, players and cross platform playback.
