  • The planning activities still have to deal with the physical structure and infrastructure of cities . Public spaces, squares, streets, private spaces, mobility, density, segregation, land use regulations remain relevant to the management and operation of the city, but it is mandatory to add new tools that can display and manage the flows of information , connecting business, government and not government organizations, and especially citizens, that from these cultural and technological possibilities can act, also politically and influence the way of thinking and acting on these structures, both physical and digital.Developed platforms with ever more ubiquitous technologies , easy to use and economical, together with the emergence of a new technological culture brought about by the advent of the so-called Web 2.0, are today powerful auxiliary instruments of participatory planning , allowing the user to view and interact with contexts, with the data, and may incorporate the temporal dimension in the analysis of space. Therefore, it is possible to use such resources in the assessment of scenarios , discussion of alternatives in favor of sharing ideas and even to experience its ability to stimulate citizens to establish social, civic and democratic interactions, as a kind of Internet-mediated governance. in favor of sharing ideas and even to experience its ability to stimulate citizens to establish social, civic and democratic interactions, as a kind of Internet-mediated governance.

  • NETWORK IS GLOBALInternet allows connection for various networked local events occur in different parts of the worldIn digital culture, the distance is measured differentlyNew geographies are formed exploding contextual limits and boundaries between localities and previous hierarchies of scale
  • PLACE MATTERS?Most of the urban politics are concrete, focused on the local issues and lead by the local peoplePublic space accommodates a wide range of political activities, many of them visible on the streetsTheir visibility can be amplified by the digital media circulating in local and global networks
  • PUBLIC SPHERE/SPACECultural/informational repository for ideas and projects that feed the public debate, where the interaction between citizens, civil society and the state happens (Castells, 2008)Public space provides the expanse that allows the public sphere to convene, but it does not guarantee a healthy public sphere (Papacharissi, 2008)
  • GLOBAL PUBLIC SPHEREIn the globalized world, a global civil society emerges  There is a shift of public spheres territorially limited to a public sphere formed by systems of mediaMass self-communication (web 2.0, 3G, 4G)  Networks of communication that relate many-to- many in a multimodal form of communication that bypasses mass media and often escapes government control (Castells, 2009)
  • NETWORKED PUBLIC SPHERECellphones provide movements that are born and flow into physical encounters, spreading information and feelings exponentially, a kind of effect from “small worlds”Networks of trust are formed instantly as the person who receives the message identifies its source and starts to distribute it based on its own address book
  • HYBRID PUBLIC SPHERESocial networks are now the space in which people connect, communicate, exhibit themselves, interact, and invite other to flock to the streets, squares, every public or almost-public spacesThe public sphere has become hybrid  it incorporates virtual and geographical spaces and traditional and social media  no separations between digital/virtual and physical/real as the citizens use these two social environments simultaneously
  • SPACES FOR COLLABORATION/CITIZENSHIPDigital serious games can add new dimensions in the representation of the reality, and aim to educate and support learning about the environment and urban planning initiativesParticipants take on different roles, can be immersed in the system and suddenly part of the digital reality in a completely new way
  • SPACES FOR COLLABORATION/CITIZENSHIPDigital representation of the world is now available on handheld devices that can be carried in the pocket and accessed (almost) anywhere providing  easy collaborative mapping and crowdsourcing,  use of geographical and social networking applications on mobile devices  applications of Augmented Reality

  • SOME COMMENTSDespite the lack of transparency andcontrol over the code embedded in thecommercial software, people are stillpopulating the cyberspace and creatingcivic spaces online spaces that support the user’smotivation to speak and collaborate withher community or with a wider publicspace with which he/she identifieshim/herself
  • SOME COMMENTSEven e-Participation platforms that are simplemurals of complaints may turn into civicspacescreative spaces of shared practices can become aplace for the open knowledge construction anddemocratic improvementInitiatives that consider the differences in theperception and interests among differentgroups may accommodate various subjectivedimensions and establish a new publicspace/sphere multifaceted
  • SOME COMMENTSInternet is not only a support element and technological mediation. It also works as an environment for information, communication and action within multiple and heterogeneous systemsPlanners must recognize that now the citizens’urban experience is not only influenced by urban form but by different media and forms of communication with which they interact daily
  • SOME COMMENTSGeographical space was not replaced bycyberspace. Dichotomy between the virtual/digital x real/physical are being surpassedby the overlap or convergence betweenphysical and digital environmentsBesides the use of technologies forcommunication and social interaction weface the emergence of what some authorscall "urban computing" or "everyware"(Greenfield, 2006; Dodge & Kitchin, 2011)
  • Visual explorations of urban mobility SENSEable City Lab - MIT
  • VIRTUAL/REAL Yu Zheng, Urban Computing with Taxicabs, Beijing, 2011
  • THE BORDER IS EVERYWHEREIndividual and collective, micro and macroactions became visible showing how theworld behaves at a certain timesLocal interactions can influence the overallnetwork (Latour, 2011). Many people are ableto choose ideas coming from differentcultures and take what they find mostappropriate for each situation
  • Tweets after the earthquake in Virginia
  • FINALLY...Knowledge produced in a new way – pervasive,contextualized and unplanned – gives anopportunity to a higher level of publicparticipationIn this way we might experience a citizenshipmodel where local government and publicadministration represent just nodes in adecentralized network whose topology respondsto demands for greater public participation anddemocracy
