Abstract

Many new urban developments are systematically planned and rapidly built and marketed, trying to create instant ‘communities’ in dense concentrations. In Hong Kong for example, new high-rise residential developments create concentrations of up to 10,000 people per apartment precinct (Forrest et al., 2002). Developers and governments around the world struggling to achieve socially sustainable neighbourhood communities in these urban contexts are increasingly considering the role of new media and information and communication technology (ICT). Conventional community technology (such as portals and intranets) do not work by themselves, mainly because they assume a ‘collective’ approach to building community and neglect the social structures that emerge from fluid social networks (Arnold et al., 2003; Foth, 2006a, 2006b; Foth & Hearn, 2007, forthcoming; Hopkins, 2005). Instead of a collective approach, the ecology of social networks and their digital augmentation in the context of inner-city urban developments is the focus of this workshop.

Impact and interest:

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
