3.0 out of 5 stars a different world ?, 20 Sept. 2002
This review is from: E-topia: "Urban Life, Jim-But Not As We Know It" (Paperback)
For anyone who has had the privilege of meeting the author, then they'll find that this book comes over in the same informal, warm and visionary style.
There's a liberal helping of Negroponte / MediaLab concepts in the pages here, and if you are familar with such, then you may not find much new here. However, Mitchell's context for technology is where the physical and digital worlds come together and that brings a thought provoking perspective to such perennial favourites as electronic paper and the intelligent fridge.
The most engaging portions are where he considers how cities, communities, and communal social practices are altered by technology - location is no longer the advantage.
There's a mass of value in the 23 pages of notes and references at the end to take you to some marvellous further reading.
