SFU Community Programs: the Polis

“ A city is the place of cosmopolitan interactions and enhanced communication…It is not dedicated to the rigid reproductions of the same, the “one best way”, but to the flexible testing of possibilities and the development of the new- not hierarchical control but unplanned horizontal contacts; not simplification and standardization but variety and growth of the capabilities required to live in a more complex world.”

Andrew Feenburg, “The Factory or the City” in “Transforming Technology”

  • Murphy’s Law always applies
  • Build in contingency time
