The activism of digital natives is often considered different from previous generations because of the methods and tools they use.

IT, The City and Public Space
by Nishant Shah published Feb 22, 2010 last modified Aug 02, 2011 06:07 AM — filed under: , , , ,
In the Introduction to the project, Pratyush Shankar at CEPT, Ahmedabad, lays out the theoretical and practice based frameworks that inform contemporary space-technology discourses in the fields of Architecture and Urban Design. The proposal articulates the concerns, the anxieties and the lack of space-technology debates in the country despite the overwhelming ways in which emergence of internet technologies has resulted in material and imagined practices of people in urbanised India. The project draws variously from disciplines of architecture, design, cultural studies and urban geography to start a dialogue about the new kinds of public spaces that inform the making of the IT City in India.
