Rob Kitchin’s Cyberspace: The World in Wires (Wiley, 1998) debates the cultural, political, economic and social implications of cyberspace and virtual technologies.
Cyberspace – the most over-hyped term of the late 20th Century – is really transforming our lives. The way we work, find information, find entertainment how we do business, how we communicate with each other, how we understand time and space — cyberspatial technology has changed all this. It has also raised new questions about who has (and who ultimately controls) access to new technology and thus to information, how new cultural and political groupings can be created regardless of geography and even of policing, how cities and economies can restructure to remain globally competitive, about the individual’s right to information, the power of information over the power of capital, and about where our bodies end and our machines begin. This is the first complete and systematic analysis of cyberspace and virtual technologies, covering not only technological developments but their social, cultural, political and economic implications.
