Mobilities Journal


I've just been taking a look at the new Routledge Journal titled 'Mobilities'. Currently working on a chapter for The Medicalization of Cyberspace that draws extensively on this notion, I'm struck by how wide the concept might apply. Much of the journal so far focuses on automobiles, which reminds me of some of the work I've read in the philosophy of technology literature. Nevertheless, I'm sure this journal will become influential as this term becomes all the more intriguing by the prevasive movement of data. My interest is particularly from the perspective of urban mobility. The work I've done at the various Olympic Games has been interested to examine how both screens and hand held technology become an integral part of the development of community. This draws on the work by William J. Mitchell whose 'City of Bits' has informed a lot of my ideas in this area, along with Paul Virilio's various works..
