Why Bill Gates wants to build an $80M smart city utopia in Arizona
Microsoft has its CityNext program of smart city technology that many speculate will be involved.
The smart city realm just took a giant leap forward with Bill Gates getting involved in the development of a sustainable, technologically advanced community in the Arizona desert.
Gates serves as an evangelist for technology, so he will likely be able to overcome challenges in smart city development that would hinder others.
As other cities work on their own smart city plans, the news about Gates and his Arizona development will likely spur more tech advances in other municipalities.
