by Jung Hoon Han; Sang Ho Lee
International Journal of Knowledge-Based Development (IJKBD), Vol. 4, No. 2, 2013


Abstract: Contemporary cities, with diverse histories, cultures and topologies, have evolved to adopt new information and communication technology, networks and infrastructure. A number of urban issues have recently emerged in technology driven societies. These include: 1) technology stabilisation; 2) digital service redistribution; and 3) equitable technology allocation. This paper investigates technology adaptation to the effects of the recent information and communication technology (ICT) shift to ubiquitous or pervasive computing. Drawing on both the Australian and Korean experience we discuss ICT development strategies to address the digital divide and digital inequality at different spatial and technological scales.
