Archiving the Internet, crowdsourced parking spaces, and really bad passwords. This week in Five for Wednesday.

- From cooperative housing to health care, urban life is rapidly changing. Read about the six design and technology trends reshaping cities.

- “123456,” “password,” “monkey,” and “letmein” are among the contestants in the battle for the worst passwords of 2014.
- Finally, Google’s Material Design philosophy is a pretty big deal, which makes it so great that it’s been brought to Chrome for iOS. (Learn more about Material Design here.)
