Urbanists weigh in on The City 2.0

Nate Berg, interviewing Jake Barton, founder of Local Projects, for the Atlantic Cities:

“Creating a website is not terribly difficult. But creating a project that actually has an impact on communities? That’s really hard,” Barton says. “From my experience, the website is a great way to gain attention and motivation and traction, but to actually make real change happen, it’s people.”

Looks like I’m not the only one questioning the ability of The City 2.0 to solve urban problems.
