Welcome on the website, home of city projects in the Information Society. On this site you can read about Infocities Office, see work-in-progress, read the sites of finished projects, but also you find "news and notes". The reason we started this section is because 1. there are no(t many) sites that treat policy and technological developments from a European perspective on the Information Society, and 2. we did not want to clutter our colleagues' mailboxes with e-mail "hey did you hear about this ..." while finding out later that other colleagues would have loved to receive the news. Through this Web site everybody can remain up to date effortless.

"News" is "data". We want to provide "information": an added value to the news in the form of an opinion. "What is the significance of developments?". We do not pretend to predict the future, but possibly make a contribution to your own opinion forming.
