I just published a book about the development of historical development of metropolitan Boston that concludes with a chapter about potential impacts from digital technology. The book is "The Hub’s Metropolis: Greater Boston’s Development from Railroad Suburbs to Smart Growth" (MIT Press, 2013). This book provides historical context for understanding the region’s contemporary planning efforts that are addressing the challenges of low-density sprawl, climate change, and the global information age economy. The City of Boston is positioning itself to be a leader in the development of “smart cities” with the Mayor’s Office of New Urban Mechanics.
