Intelligent Communities Global Blog Series Kickoff, The World’s Smartest Cities

I can hardly wait.  In two days the suspense will be over and the Intelligent Community Forum (ICF) will have selected its 2013 Intelligent Community of the Year.  With so many extraordinary and innovative communities in the running, I’m glad it’s not up to me to choose one.  But I do have the thrill and privilege of seeing it all happen, live in New York City at the ICF Summit this week.

I and the other attendees will no doubt listen in awe to the inspiring leaders from all around the world as they talk about the way their organizations are changing the way people in their communities or regions work, live, play, and learn.  Who will be this year’s winner?  One strong candidate is Toronto Canada, one of this year’s Top7 communities.  Learn more about their initiatives in the video below:

The analyst praises in particular the number of languages supported (40, not including English) ahead of many other sites; and the high-level of consistency of presentation across these local implementations, while being “flexible enough to support local content and promotions.” The analyst also notes that “Cisco leads the sector in its support for locally relevant social networks”, showing as an example social media aggregation pages on cisco.com in the US and Korea.

Cisco Social in Korean

Kudos to the fantastic work done by our fabulous virtual team across organizational lines and geographies, who pretty much never sleep and yet somehow manage to look bright eyed and bushy tailed night or day when I see them.
