Thinking in Telepathic Cities

salon1.jpg[Image Left: Anthony Townsend] “[I]t should be clear that telepathy is historically linked to numerous other tele-phenomena: it is part of the establishment of tele-culture in general. It is necessarily related to other nineteenth-century forms of communication from a distance through new and often invisible channels, including the railway, telegraphy, photography, the telephone and the gramophone. It is this part of a culture which is still in the process of being articulated, and in this respect perhaps the question “Do you believe in telepathy?” need not be regarded as categorically or essentially distinguishable from questions such as “Do you believe in the telephone?” or “Do you believe in television?” Continue reading

The Symbiosis between Design & Information Visualization

231.jpg“Abstract: This paper analyzes the relationships between creative design and the field of information visualization, with a focus on historical connotations and newest developments that show great potential.

Several symbiotic dependencies are explained and demonstrated, including the first conceptual cyberspace and information architecture definitions. Continue reading

Our world is continually shaped and reshaped by patterns of mobility.
