Less than a decade ago, Uber, AirBnB, and WeWork didn?t exist. Today, one is worth more on paper than Ford Motor, another more than Hyatt, and the third more than Boston Properties. Why? The short answer is that there?s an app for all that, but the truth is more complicated ? how and where we live, how we move, and how we work are all being disrupted. The rise of coworking, co-living, ride-hailing, and placemaking all point to new possibilities for networking, re-purposing, and more intensively utilizing what was previously just a house, a car, an office, or a street. How we perceive cities, how we use them, and how we find each other within them has been transformed by our ability to connect, to summon services on demand, and to analyze and harness our increasingly sophisticated ?data exhaust? (e.g. location data, likes, check-ins, taxi and Uber trips, and more).
In his talk, NewCities? Greg Lindsay describes how cities‐as‐a‐service are changing how we live, work, move, and more ? and the new real estate, services, and business model opportunities this creates.
