“If knowledge is about the city … then you are beginning to tell an urban story”
Great short video on how data is different from knowledge (“knowledge is not simply a data set”); getting knowledge from data requires an interpretation, an experience in a way that data does not. The video comes from the
Picnic festival: Life in Readable Cities hosted by the European Journalism Center.
Here’s also her piece on
“Why Cities Matter”.
