It’s something of a stream of consciousness exploration of the subject but hopefully gives a flavour of my point of view. Namely that cities arn’t just simply analogous to social networks, but rather some of the functions that cities provide (proximity, economies of scale, random interaction etc) are now increasingly being provided by social networks.
And most importantly, we are only just beginning to see the impact on our cities and places which will be profoundly impacted by the web, just as they have been historically by other disruptive technologies.
Anyway, enough on that, but as always I’d be interested in any thoughts and feedback as ever.
PS. Thanks again to Sue Thomas for curating the event and inviting me to attend.
