In the four or so years since we completed the manuscript of Code/Space, it is evermore apparent that the onrushing pace of digitisation of economic tran- sactions and social interactions means that scope of software has increased in most people’s lives, yet the ability to comprehend the workings of code itself and account for its agency remains limited. Given the growing automation of activities, the potential advantages at least for some, and the inherent risks of taking humans out of the loop, it is helpful to have this forum to consider why code matters from a spa- tial perspective and how human geographers might contribute to documenting work of software.
