  • Peutinger’s Table:In the 16th century an antique dealer in Augsburg, Konrad Peutinger received a map of questionable date showing the routes linking all the Roman cities --- 6,000 proper names and 550 sketched vignettes.... It was at once a map, a road plan, and a travel guide. extending to the edges of the Empire [from Bordeaux all the way to CeylonIt is the key to the “Roman System” = the city as an articulated system of movements in all directions, and its bldgs spread out like relay points: “... it is like a prefiguration of the atlases of cyberspace” [from Atalli, Mutations}

  • Ghost Ship ”The night of December 26, 1996, a 'ghost' ship with 283 Singhaleseclandestine immigrants on board and on route from Malta towards the Italian coast, sank, a few miles off South-eastern Sicily, carrying with it its load of life. For five long years, the relatives' and survivors' invocations were answered by contemptuous denials and ironies from the Italian Authorities, who repeated with certainty that \"the shipwreck had never occurred\". Meanwhile, fishermen from Portopalo continuously found corpses in their nets. For 60 long months, the Sea slowly returned the traces of a tragedy consistently denied by the military and removed by the fishermen. Neither the fishermen, nor the local Authorities had the courage to denounce the truth, until the recovery of an ID belonging to a young man from Ceylon suddenly created an breach thanks to the meticulous work of Giovanni Maria Bellu, a reporter for the Italian newspaper 'la Repubblica'. Today, almost 2000 days after the shipwreck, the 'ghost ship', with its load, re-emerges, visible to everyone.  ”
  • Digital is often associated with network(ed), post-industrial, cognitive, creative, virtual, information, new, knowledge, etc. ‘The information age’ used to describe the period that we now find ourselves living in is open to misinterpretation. Society has always been based on exchanging information and, it has always been based on flows, networks, as well as creative people. Hence Castells’ ''space of flows', 'informational city' (1989), and 'network society' (1996) are somewhat 'loose' concepts.
  • Castells positions this space of flow in opposition to the space of places of the geographers, arguing that a placeless culture has evolved out of the increasing interconnectedness between local, regional and national communities.
  • For example: Newspapers exchanged information, their management required substantial capital investment. They established one-way communication, a model adopted by radio, television and later cable and satellite communication
  • Now distributed networks based on free open software, Wikipedia built and accessed via personal computers with a network connection--- link together nonmarket collaborations… open sharing for all others to build on, extend, make their own.
  • Geographers have played a strong role in this debate (Brunn and Leinbach 1991; Graham 1998; May and Thrift 2001). Pioneered by Janelle (1968), time–space analysis is closely linked to the study of globalization, What is new is the ‘digital revolution’ : the fact that networks, information, knowledge, and cognition are now increasingly processed and transacted in digital form, using digital devices and infrastructures.
