136,233.  So much of what humankind has achieved over the past three millennia has come out of the remarkable collaborative creations that come out of cities.  We are a social species.  We come out of the womb with the ability to sop up information from people around us.  It’s almost our defining characteristic as creatures.  And cities play to that strength.  Cities enable us to learn from other people.  They enable us to become better, in a sense, by leveraging the talent of the crowds around us.  When you think about all the great inventions that human beings have made – from Athenian philosophy to Henry Ford’s Model T’s, to Facebook – they were always collaborative.  There was always situations in which one person borrowed an idea from someone else and then another idea was borrowed and then all of a sudden something absolutely magical occurred.  Cities make all of that possible. And that’s why I think they’re are not only mankind’s greatest invention, but also our best hope for the future.  Kai Ryssdal, Harvard University economist, cited Marketplace online

 

 

136,378.  The biggest man-made structure on Earth … That’s what the Western Front was: a vast twentieth-century military city of encampments and trenches and dug-outs and barbed-wire.  With its complex infrastructure of roads, railways, ammunition dumps, factories, hospitals, brothels and morgs, the Western Front was a linear city extending 450 miles from the Swiss Frontier to the English Channel, and with a population to match.  By 1917 this was the most culturally and ethnically diverse place in Earth.  (World War I & Black People & City)   David Olusoga, The World’s War: Forgotten Soldiers of Empire II: Martial Races, BBC 2014

109,809.  Marvels of dullness and regimentation … This is not the rebuilding of cities.  This is the sacking of cities.  (New York & Architecture & City)  ibid.  Jacobs, The Death and Life of Great American Cities

3,930.  Earth has not anything to show more fair:
