Tracking the Net: Using Domain Names To Measure the Growth of the Internet in U.S. Cities.
Moss, Mitchell L.; Townsend, Anthony
Journal of Urban Technology, v4 n3 p47-60 Dec 1997
The Internet's addressing system, the domain name system, provides geographic information on Internet activity. This study shows that cities, as well as institutions of higher education in the cities, are driving, rather than simply participating in, information-based phenomena such as the expansion of the Internet. Some implications of this activity for the future of cities are discussed. (SLD)
