Makers of the Environment is an information model… a book that connects to external information that connects to the built environment. The ability to use data in ways that make things happen to get work done is the foundation of most of the things that we find of benefit on the Internet…including maps, travel sites, social networks and most other systems. The scenarios are built around technology and processes that exist today or that can credibly be projected from today’s tools and the environment. The focus is on possibilities and design futures for how technology can lead culture and how each of us can prepare ourselves for tomorrow. We can have a secure, verifiable and accessible archive for the digital assets that help us define and manage real-world assets.
The pages that follow are outlines of the content and chapters of Makers of the Environment.
