The Unbearable Lightness of the Network Economy
Bit Structures are a new infrastructure in the city, providing unprecedented synchronization and organization in seeming formlessness.

Control Space) and GPS (Global Positioning System) its navigation. Bit Structures are the mechanism by which the virtual establishes its logic in the real.
