A preliminary bibliography for studies of Code/Spaces

I have begun writing down some thoughts about the co-production of space and place between the human and the technical (for me, following Stiegler, neither pre-exists the other) that Martin Dodge and Rob Kitchin have usefully labeled “Code/Space”.  This is not, of course, the only form of spatiality that are associated with the performance of ‘technicity’ in everyday life, but it is a useful category for description.  I have prepared a first cut from my EndNote database and added some additional references from Kitchin & Dodge’s “Code/Space: Software and Everyday Life” that may be of interest and/or useful to others. Please find it in plain text below.

[Update 31/01/12: Following a post to the ‘crit-geog-forum’ list I have received some really helpful emails and so I have updated this bibliography.]

  1. what about Clay Chirky´s fun books on the meshing of social media and public space for local social justice? (Cognitive Surplus, Hear Comes Everybody)

  2. Thank you for the links.

    In particular, the HASTAC working group on Critical Code Studies is a great resource!
