Martijn de Waal - De Stad als Interface

Hoe Nieuwe Media de Stad Veranderen. Dutch edition, also available in English. Digital and mobile media are changing the way urban life takes shape
and how we experience our built environment. This seems a mainly
practical matter: thanks to these technologies we can organize our lives
more conveniently. But the rise of these ‘urban media’ also presents us
with an important philosophical issue: What do they mean for how the
city functions as a community? Employing examples of new media
uses as well as historical case studies, Martijn de Waal shows how new
technologies, on one level, contribute to the further individualization
and liberalization of urban society. There is an alternative future
scenario, however, in which digital media construct a new definition of
the urban public sphere. In the process they also breathe new life into
the classical republican ideal of the city as an open, democratic
‘community of strangers’. Reflect #10.
