    17. 17. A biased innovation a barrier to diffusion ? or • ownership of BMW vehicles • a joke in Quebec which doesn't translate into English • the spread of certain ring tones • the popularity of a new movie • the popularity of a new movie in Spanish • a software program subject to export restrictions • a disease found only among the mammals on a large island

    20. 20. A process in which items being diffused leave the originating areas as they move to new areas (i.e. the items diffuse with people migrating). Relocation Diffusion Innovations (or diseases) that are less (or more) accessible to people of a certain gender, class, age, or ethnicity. This diffusion theory emphasizes social context in addition to spatial context. Biased Innovation Physical, political, cultural, or economic impediments to diffusion. The spread of some phenomenon over space and through time from a limited number of origins. Spatial Diffusion Barriers to Diffusion
    21. 21. A system of cities consisting of various levels, with few cities at the top level and increasingly more settlements on each lower level. The position of a city within the hierarchy is determined by the types of central place functions it provides. Urban Hierarchy A process in which the items being diffused remain and often intensify in the origin area as new areas are being affected (i.e. the items diffuse from person to person). Expansion Diffusion
    22. 22. Diffusion of a disease, cultural trait, idea, or innovation that spreads outward from a node or epicenter in wave-like fashion. This diffusion emphasizes the frictional force of distance in explaining the spread of things in time and space. Contagious Effects Diffusion of a disease, cultural trait, idea, or innovation from larger to smaller places, leaping over nearby but small places in the early stages. This diffusion emphasizes the size distribution of urban places (i.e. the urban hierarchy) in explaining the spread of things over time and space. Hierarchical Effects
