WorldChanging: Another World Is Here: The Future of the City, Castells-style

WorldChanging: Another World Is Here: The Future of the City, Castells-style:

"To me, one of the critical insights here is that the global city is not London, New York, Tokyo or Jo'berg -- it is the part of each which is connected to an analagous part in each of the others.

The global city is a distributed phenomenon. There is only one global city, and it floats on top of the others like lace.

Another key understanding is that the physical, the neighborly, the visceral and urban and the virtual, the connected, the digital and networked -- these are symbiants, not competitors."
