Leonard calls the whole thing "new economy social engineering." I'm intrigued that its about things like water, roads, and electricity and not $100 laptops. But I also wonder where are the urban ecologists, the designers and architects in a discussion like this? (and the other obvious question, where are the rural Indians?)
