Yes, I recognized that too. This cities are looked somewhat similar to
the von Thünen rings (don't know if that is the english scientific term
for that in german it is called "Thünsche Ringe").
So "centrality" (in german "Zentralität") -> distance from production
place to market place, is a function of used transport energy which
generates costs (work/recources). And that this truth was discovered
some 200 years ago don't make it necessarily less true today. ;-)
But to clearify, I'm not willing to defend or promote the Ideas that the
creators of that video might intendet. I wasn't aware of the project
behind it as I posted the video link. I read thruogh their homepage
today... In the moment I can't find anything bad with it, but to be
honest it doesn't seem really ass kicking either to me.
