conference contribution
posted on 2023-05-24, 10:03 authored by McEachern, CM
Despite the unprecedented transformative power of digital technologies, their impact on quality of life and sustainable, innovative and democratic outcomes is poorly understood. Data from two similar rural regions in Tasmania and Norway, questions the widespread assumption that daily use and content of digital technologies will improve community responsibility for the future of places. Spatial, temporal, informational and communicative stresses are undermining the promised potential of 'the digital future'. The solution requires far more critical learning of both the ends and the means.
