[Yasmin_discussions] Hybrid City as Interface


annick bureaud forwarded this to me= i think its another
good example

see for instance

VirtualUrban is an exploration of the relationship between the real
and the virtual in urban space

i like these also as example of " micro-science"


Lilipods are tools for studying, implementing and monitoring DIY
bioremediation efforts through community stewardship.

The project merges electronic data collection and visualization,
ecological research and community activism.
