Summary
This is an introduction to a new type of city, a largely invisible but increasingly important system of virtual spaces interconnected by the emerging information superhighway. Practical examples and illustrations are used to examine architecture and urbanism in the context of digital telecommunications revolution, the ongoing miniaturisation of electronics, the comodification of bits, and the growing domination of software over materialized form
