Digital Public Spaces publication

The FutureEverything Summit in Manchester, is exploring three themes this year: Creative Code, Future Cities and The Data Society, and launching a two year programme to FutureEverything's 20th anniversary in 2015. On 22 March 2013, FutureEverything launched the first publication on the Digital Public Space.

Digital Public Spaces

This publication gathers a range of short explorations of the idea of the Digital Public Space. The central vision of the Digital Public Space is to give everyone everywhere unrestricted access to an open resource of culture and knowledge. This vision has emerged from ideas around building platforms for engagement around cultural archives to become something wider, which this publication is seeking to hone and explore.

This is the first publication to look at the emergence of the Digital Public Space. Contributors include some of the people who are working to make the Digital Public Space happen.
