Code/space and the nature, production and enrolment of software.
Dialogues in Human Geography, 3 (2).
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.
