The Instituto de Estudios Regionales y Metropolitanos de Barcelona has just made available their last issue (n. 57) of Revista Papers. It is a monography on emergent discourses on urban policies and it includes my article, La desilusión de las smart cities. Está sucediendo, pero no en la forma en la que nos lo han contado (The disenchantment of the smart cities. It is happening, but not in the way e are being told). The essay synthesizes the underlying concepts behind the most estandarized version of the smart city narrative (myths), while, at the same time, it serves as a proposal for an alternative understanding of the role of digital technologies in urban life and urban policies.
