Description - The Internet City: People, Companies, Systems and Vehicles by Aharon Kellerman

As the Internet develops, on top of earlier urban communications, facilities and media, it is becoming the site of urban communications on an unprecedented scale. Exploring the history of the Internet, from pre-conception to the possibilities of an internet-based future, The Internet City explores ways in which the Internet and urban life intersect.

The book interprets how the contemporary city is becoming fully based on Internet technologies in all of its major dimensions: the daily activities of urbanites and urban companies, the operations of urban systems, and the functioning of upcoming driverless vehicles. With particular focus on the ways in which people routinely consume urban services via the Internet, Aharon Kellerman examines how they are simultaneously present in physical and digital spaces.

Urban geographers and urban planners will benefit from the detailed information on how the cityscape will be altered in the near future by the introduction of internet-based autonomous vehicles. City policy makers will also find this a useful tool to explore how and why policies may need to be updated in accordance with the rising importance of the Internet in the urban sphere.
