For as long as data have been generated about cities various kinds of data-informed urbanism have been occurring. In this paper, I argue that a new era is presently unfolding wherein data-informed urbanism is increasingly being complemented and replaced by data-driven, networked urbanism. . . . HOWEVER, whilst data-driven, networked urbanism provides a set of solutions for urban problems, it does so within limitations and in the service of particular interests.
Defend the Right to Share Your Work
Academic publisher Elsevier recently changed their rules on how authors may share their work. Authors were previously allowed to share their manuscripts through repositories immediately upon publication; now they may have to wait up to 4 years before doing so. The Confederation of Open Access Repositories (COAR), a group dedicated to open access to publicly-funded work, has put together a statement where individuals and institutions can collectively ask Elsevier to reconsider this action. Please add your name and help raise awareness of the struggle to keep knowledge freely available to all. Learn more.
