How is it possible to capture the real-time life of the city, using social networks, sensors, data, wearable devices, Internet of Things, domotics, and other sources of digital information? How can this process represent the myriads of micro-histories in the city, and their potential for generating diffused knowledge and imaginaries? What are peer-to-peer ethnography and Digital Urban Acupuncture? What is the Relational Ecosystem of the city? Each micro-workshop deals one ‘knowledge pill’, delivered by Myriad’s info-dealers. No technical or technological pre-requisite needed.
