Sean Patrick O’Brien, SAP: “What defines a best run city, how can you measure this, what do you benchmark against, and is this the same way citizens, businesses and officials make such a judgment?”

Meghan Cook, Center for Technology in Government, Univ. at Albany, NY: “The mesh is an emerging business model based on a network enabled sharing – on access rather than ownership … where consumers have more choices, more tools, more information, and more peer-to-peer power to guide the choices” (Lisa Gansky, author of The Mesh: Why the Future of Business is Sharing).

Cindy King, City of Edmonton: “Make sure what you do is a product of your own conclusion” (Jim Rohn).
