Bit Structures

The Unbearable Lightness of the Network Economy

Bit Structures are a new infrastructure in the city, providing unprecedented synchronization and organization in seeming formlessness. Bit Structures reorganize the pattern of the city and allow its destabilization, while GIS (Geographic Information System) allows its control (cf. Control Space) and GPS (Global Positioning System) its navigation. Bit Structures are the mechanism by which the virtual establishes its logic in the real.
