Abstract:

"This book analyses the geography of the commercial internet industry during the dot-com boom. It presents the first accurate map of Internet domains in the world, by country, by region, by city, and for the United States, by neighborhood. Contrary to the predictions of some futurologists, the book demonstrates the extraordinary spatial concentration of the industry and the continued relevance of geography to patterns of economic development in the twenty-first century." "Based on in-depth interviews and field work in two key areas - San Francisco Bay Area and New York City - Matthew Zook provides a theoretically informed argument supported by appropriate evidence. His book will be of interest to all those concerned about inequalities arising or being perpetuated through unequal access to technology and the factors driving regional economic development."--BOOK JACKET.
