Adelaide is a digital city, but not necessarily a smart or intelligent city; that is, one that makes a conscious effort to use information technology to transform life and work within its region in significant and fundamental, rather than incremental, ways. The city’s environment is surrounded and penetrated by a silent and invisible flow of data through its network cables, routers and wireless devices. There’s an excess of data in the ever changing flows that is impacting on our notions of stability, identity and place since the networked city becomes a space of digital data flows.
