What will replace politics as usual in a smart city?

Can tactical urbanism, Internet journalism, direct action, “open data”, crowd-funding and social networking replace the comfortable business-as-usual model in which the various casts of the power elite scratch each others back within an established system of power-play and paybacks? Can these various types of free form action provide a solution that is at once local and complex and accessible and less corrupted?

Interesting post from the Community Architect Blog from Baltimore.
