Welcome to the Smarter Planet blog. Since you’ve found yourself here via @SmarterPlanet on Twitter, let me offer a quick explanation. First, for plenty of background reading on the vision for a Smarter Planet, take a gander here on this blog, ass well as on ibm.com/smarterplanet. Now, about @SmarterPlanet on Twitter, it’s intended to extend some of the conversations we start here on the blog and serve as a listening post where we can engage with many of you on that platform as well.
Our goal is not to create another broadcast tool, but rather to use @SmarterPlanet to share and discuss some of the interesting ideas you may have around working toward a smarter planet.
We’ll be putting particular focus in our discussions around building Smarter Cities. And on that point, we want to hear your perspectives on what progress means in your city. About how your city is making strides toward being more sustainable, economically vibrant, safer, healthier, and sustainable. As such, expect to see us make heavy use of the #smartercity hashtag.
So please feel free to reach out to us on Twitter, or, of course, here on the blog, to share with us what your observations on what could help build a smarter planet. Or, better yet, what could help make your city smarter.
