Title: Irreductionally Real Information Infrastructures: Practices beyond Universals
Authors: Harvey, Francis

Date: Jul-2013
Abstract: The Internet was designed to be nuclear war and future-proof. Probably unexpectedly, these two issues supported each other. Indeed, the need to create a decentralized large digital network made it open-ended the way we have come to know the internet through the last years. The changes are also relevant to specific developments of spatial data infrastructures and their future. Our focus is on the practical and empirical aspects of the internet and related infrastructures, as they have become part of our present and future prospects.
