This one is bound to be an Anthony Townsend classic. If you understand it, please email me and tell me what it’s about, because I’m still not sure I quite get it myself. It will be published later this year in a volume of works arising out of the conference on Towards A Philosophy of Telecommunications Convergence in Budapest last year, and edited by Kristof Nyiri.

Updated 22 April 2008, here is the PDF of the final page proofs. Looks great!

    I have to say I really liked this article and did get what it was going on about I think! Interesting too for me as I am writing an urban history of Croatia under Fascism between 1941 and 1945 and a lot of the themes and debates about urbanism and life in the city are the same: communication, surveillance, the anonymity and atomisation of the big city versus personal freedom and social experimentation. Plus ca change. Alternatively, it could just be an article about technological advances and innovations in the city in which case my interpretation is completely off the wall.
