Re: Reasons why this is happening so early in Israel
Definitely a friendly amendment, Ariella. Yes, Israel is a much more technophilic environment, and that speeds earlyadaptation too.

Re: Exciting, but
Ariella,

Oh, agreed at once: right now there are a large number of privacy regulations which vary greatly across borders, and to which companies must pay attention. And that's likely to be the case for the next few years.

But every year, more of the people who grew up with the idea that privacy was a basic right and essential to their lives will die, and every year more of the people who are going to find it a quaint nuisance are being born.  And the technological trends are mostly for easier surveillance and much easier tracking.

I don't think our grandchildren will live in 1984. I think it'll be more like Modern Times, or Brave New World.

Re: Exciting, but
On one hand, I appreciate the safety CCTV provides - but I also think American deployment of something similar wouldn't necessarily garner the same result of protecting citizens. Unfortunately, our government doesn't give me confidence in the "it's not a problem if you've got nothing to hide" concept. Our legal system (and law enforcement) doesn't do the best job of serving in our citizens' best interest. :-/

Young City
Modi'in was selected for a number of reasons. It's fairly a young city with good and modern infrastructure.

Very good point explaining why they chose this city for pilot. Any newly built city has modern infrastructure and technology which makes it more feasible to be smart adaptable.

Re: Exciting, but
@JohnBarnes one can entertain that as a question to be debated in a university class. However, there are strong assumptions about rights to privacy that govern data transfer laws. The EU is a lot more stringent than the USA. It was a suit of a Facebook user in Ireland last year that brought down the whole Safe Harbour framework. That's why now we have the Privacy Shield to govern legal data transfers with more built into redress for European citizens who feel their data somehow got carried across the Atlanatic without their explicit consent. They also are allowed protection from government suveillance, one of the key flaws they found in Safe Harbour after Snowden's revelations. So you may say that it makes sense one way or the other, but companies better pay attention to what the law does stipulate for the countries in which they operate.

Re: Exciting, but
Ariella, The real question is, is privacy actually good for anything? Or is it just the peculiar taste of people who spend too much time by themselves? The costs are actually pretty high of you think about things like domestic abuse, fraud, conspiracy, etc. and mostly borne by the rest of society. Why should the rest of us pay for people to be able to buy illegal drugs, plot crimes, and indulge embarrassing fantasies?

Re: smart cities
I agree a lot of things are changing and moving to digital. It kind of worries me how fast everything is changing and how much technology really is taking over.
