Technological Interface of the City – The Promise of a Real Bottom-Up Urban Planning?
Abstract: The paper shows how developing social networking services, geo-media applications, e-management tools, and even some particular types of web ‘games’ may contribute to the creation of technological interfaces of our cities. Nevertheless, the paper calls into question whether these technological environments may contribute to the real change in urban planning – the change from the top-down to the bottom-up approach.
