"Digital innovation is ready to transform city living. A wave of geeks and techies are entering the urbanization services cluster, and aggressively reinventing everything from logistics, housing, transportation, access to healthcare, education, government services and essentially everything that civilization is based on." - JT Singh

"Digital technology is now repurposing every major touchpoint of our urban lives. Master resources such as energy, critical services such as healthcare and education, public constructs such as telecommunications and mass transit - all of it will go from heavy infrastructure to light infrastructure or even infrastructure gadgets. Nimble market players that are far more quicker and effective than big-resource companies or government agencies are at the centre of this urban revolution." - JT Singh
