Smart cities in Korea and Norway: global multiculture for the future (26/09/19 11:30:28)
Her comment was that the introduction was top-down, and people were reluctant. She wanted to learn about the Norwegian bottom-up approaches.
Hmmmm, I thought to myself. But maybe.
In Korea, I believe, there are plenty of technically educated people in the powers-that-be - in politics as well ad in the huge technology conglomerates. In Norway they are glaringly absent among politicians. We are burdened with social scientists and career politicians as rulers. So putting technology to work needs to be bottom-up. Acceptance comes naturally by grapevine spread.
I know nothing about Korea. But it would not be surprised if Koreans and Norwegians both try to ignore the politicians in their own special way: In Korea by being reluctant towards forced implementation of expensive technologies; In Norway by trying to save time and money by discovering and implementing technologies before the government find out how to tax them.
