"In Digital Places: Building Our City of Bits, Thomas Horan picks up the story at the dawn of a new century. He can look back on a tumultuous half-decade of digital infrastructure development (not so long, it might seem, but it's half a lifetime in Internet years), and a dot-com bubble of truly giga scale. He has telling examples to show, and a growing body of empirical data to rely upon. Most importantly, he has practical suggestions, grounded in experiences of success and failure so far, for designers and planners who seek to engage the problems and pursue the potentials of the digital electronic era."
