Boing Boing guest editor Chris Arkenberg interviews science fiction author and cultural observer Bruce Sterling for his views on the state of modern cities. On the positive aspects of urbanization, Sterling says there’s a lot of innovation going around in urban areas and cities seem to show more political energy even while countries are getting weaker. Sterling also talks about urbanization’s dangerous aspects and believes we need to be more apprehensive of white collar crime in cities with large financial centers, rather than organized crime such as urban warfare and drug mafias.
