70mph Blog

12 Feb

Vast amounts of geographical research has been focused on the impact of the Internet Revolution on geography as we know it. The decoupling of time, space/place and activity in recent years has completely re-invented societies and economies within the last decade. As a result, the geographies of the Internet have been heavily theorised and mapped; most of which is interesting stuff!

HOWEVER, I am posting this blog whilst traveling at 70mph (Mr Officer) along the M5 motorway on my way to the Manchester derby – of course I’m not the driver today!

….. From a geographers eye, the fact that I can blog, tweet, follow, chat or study anything on the world wide web whilst travelling at such speeds in a car is quite frankly scary. Some would say it is liberating, some would strongly argue against this! Much more importantly, the opportunity to capitalise on use of time is amazing; perhaps time and activity have never been so together?
