For thousands of years, social networks have been transacted in the physical space of buildings and cities. Facebook and Twitter have changed the landscape of transaction. To what degree is this a good thing? Do digital networks create new, unexpected and beneficial forms of transaction? Or, do they just reinforce ties with people we already know? Do these digital interactions change the ways that people behave in physical space? How should urban planners and designers be responding?

To address these questions, the Loeb Fellows have invited Nicco Mele, Associate Professor at the Kennedy School to host a conversation with leading thinker, Ethan Zuckerman, Senior Researcher at Harvard’s Berkman Center for Internet and Society.
