    Mentioned during our hangout today - the challenge of privacy for #smartcities:

    Civil Liberties Australia’s vice president, Tim Vines, sees it differently.

    “These smart technologies hold a lot of promise in terms of making better cities and using resources more efficiently,” he says.

    “But they also bring challenges, especially in privacy, and there has to be a public discussion about data being gathered by private companies, city councils and police.

    “If we can anonymously identify someone, what limitations will be placed?””

    What are your thoughts?
