SCP E10: Creating a Digital Democracy, with Brook Dixon

Thursday, 5 April

In this episode of the Smart City Podcast, I interview Brook Dixon, the Managing Director of Delos Delta, the go-to consultant for all things Smart Cities. Brook is also the newly elected President of the Australian Smart Communities Association (ASCA) and a Churchill Fellow, which allowed him to travel the world and explore Smart Cities. He is passionate about creating a digital democracy, and including the community in decision making. In this episode, we dive deep into some of the things Brook witnessed overseas, as well as the exciting things Australia is doing.“The world around us is changing. We’re in the middle of a digital revolution. If we cannot apply digital technology to the modernisation, the evolution and the progress of our democracy, then I don’t think we’re trying hard enough.”Watch Brook's TEDxCanberra talk, and connect with him on Twitter @dibrookie or at delosdelta.com Find the full show notes: thesmartcitypodcast.com Connect with me via email: zoe@thesmartcitypodcast.com Connect via Twitter and Facebook @smartcitypod
