Portrayals of smart cities and technological towns abound within SF, and they are swiftly becoming reality.  These new technologies have the ability to change the world, not just for tech reasons, but for inclusive reasons as well.  Whether the real-world developments like Silicon Valley's Google Data Center or the "City of the Future" in Abu Dhabi, or SFF portrayals like Metropolis, Blade Runner, or "Folding Beijing", urban planning continues to change as infrastructure capabilities and technology change.  Can these new technologies be used to break down barriers instead of build new ones?
