Somehow a month has slipped by since my last post to DIYcity, and looking over the site it feels as though it could as easily have been a few years.
One thing is clear: it's time for a revised version of DIYcity. Not just a touchup, but a total revamp, a re-imagning of the site, one that holds true to the idea of creating Do-It-Yourself Cities everywhere, but that is more in step with where things are at the moment.
Luckily, that's exactly what we're working on.
It has taken me longer than expected to get this going. I've been putting together a team (more on that later). I've been talking with advisors. I've been talking with city CIOs. I've been weighing different ideas for implementation against each other.
In the meantime the field has continued to grow and evolve, and I think that evolution, and the evolution of ideas for DIYcity, are going to meet up and the results will be great. It's what an investor of ours at Outside.in once called "skating to where the puck is going to be".
So hang in there for a few more weeks. Please excuse the random foreign-language spammer who occasionally slips through the cracks to send out link-bait to everyone. We're on our way, we have one or two more hurdles to cross, and then it's a straight shot to a new DIYcity.
In the meantime, enjoy your summer.
