Almost all urban systems in developed countries are undergoing a number of institutional, socio-economic and cultural changes, pushing them towards a ‘new’ societal configuration that is generally taken to be more democratic, better educated, culture-based, and environmentally sensitive, i.e., the so-called Post-Fordist society (Aminl994). Space-adjusting technologies, and particularly the New Information Technologies (NIT), are playing a substantial role in this transition, since they affect both the range and time-related organization of activities offered in an urban setting, as well as the ways in which individuals participate in them (see Castells 1989, Graham and Marvin 1996).
