"Once upon a time there was a little Shepherd who lived in a town near the woods …".So it starts Peter and the Wolf, one of the tales I read when I was a child. As every tale, Peter and the Wolf, had a moral that now comes to my mind while I am writing this post. As Peter was advised about the Wolf, we have also been advised about Global Warming. Did we learned Peter´s lesson ?
I do not think I am the only one who thinks that life inSmart cities is boring. Underprivileged citizens (most of us) are unable to break the monotony to which we are subjected in these macro moles of cement, steel, and glass. Our life takes on a scheduled basis on weekdays or weekends, on public holidays or during weekdays, with own vehicle or using public transport. No big surprises, we have used or accepted +10 hours daily work, three hours of daily traffic jams or uppercase jams when the siren sounds of the summer holidays.

El próximo 24 de mayo de 2015 se celebrarán las elecciones a la Asamblea Legislativa de la Comunidad de Madrid y de la ciudad de Madrid. Por este motivo he decidido dedicarle este post sobre ciudades inteligentes a Madrid. Y no porque se merezca estar en mi lista de las 12 ciudades más inteligentes del mundo de 2015, sino por mi esperanza de que tras estas eleccioneshaya un grupo municipal gestor con un plan y un objetivo: Hacer que la capital de España ascienda en el reputado índice IESE Cities in Motion (ICIM) 2015 de la posición 35 a estar entre las 10 primeras.
The city of Boston was named the most efficient large U.S. city in the American Council in 2013. But the reason why I have included Boston in third place after Dubai and Sunatof the dedicated series of Top List of Smart Cities for 2015 in my blog in i-Ambiente is because I expect Boston will be a reference in City Science Education.
A year ago I started my blog in i-Ambiente. During 12 months I have been writing about challenges in smart cities and how the Internet of the Things will be a key enabler by providing solutions to keep safe and welcoming cities.In 2015 I am going to write a monthly post about the top 12 smart cities on the Planet by crunching a list of variables about innovation and sustainability.
