An ‘Informational Right to the City’? - Piece in New Internationalist
Together with Joe Shaw, I have written a short article for New Internationalist titled: An ‘Informational Right to the City’?
As our cities become increasingly digital, and as corporate giants like Google play an ever increasingly central role in our digital lives, a renewed debate about what an informational right to the city might look like could help us ensure that older struggles about urban rights make their way into the digital world.
For a longer treatment of the issue, please also see our new pamphlet on the topic:
