Kansas City Tech Hype Doesn't Fix Potholes

The downside of this recent bit of tech propaganda is that KC is giving up a great deal of privacy but doesn't get better streets or sidewalks in return. Instead, locals are merely overwhelmed with digital media assault whilst the streets continue to crumble . . . Checkit:

In High-Tech Cities, No More Potholes, but What About Privacy?

Tech doesn’t fix anything, it’s all smoke and mirrors with sLIE and gang, distract you with nonsense while the city continues to self destruct, but hey, downtown has a toy train and shiny new buildings. This city is the worst.

Of course tech doesn't fix the potholes. That is why the parks and rec department started the pothole pansy program. Now they are planting shrubs in the deeper potholes.

Streets are crumbling???? How about some of the buildings in the crossroads area, those things are falling down faster than sly can run down the street naked.

It's not about fixing anything it's about allowing anyone from your geek neighbor to the russian mafia to data mine all your usage, habits, and personal info then sell it off to anyone with a pulse who can pay up.
