Changing relationships with place: The challenges of the digital future


McEachern, CM, Changing relationships with place: The challenges of the digital future, School of Geography & Environmental Studies Conference Abstracts, 2010, 28 June 2010, Sandy Bay, pp. 1. (2010) [Conference Extract]


Despite the unprecedented transformative power of digital technologies, their impact on quality of life and sustainable, innovative and democratic outcomes is poorly understood. Data from two similar rural regions in Tasmania and Norway, questions the widespread assumption that daily use and content of digital technologies will improve community responsibility for the future of places. Spatial, temporal, informational and communicative stresses are undermining the promised potential of 'the digital future'. The solution requires far more critical learning of both the ends and the means.
