We are an information society that is becoming more globalized due to technology. Cities are becoming the center in which we send and receive important information to each other. These cities are like control centers that “are able to coordinate, innovate, and manage the intertwined activities of networks of firms”, says Castells. Technology has made it more convenient for us to share data and information. We can see this type of phenomenon happening more in modern times as more and more workers are unable to go back to the office or are opting to work from home due to the pandemic. Before, Castells says that working from home was only practiced by a small percentage of people. Advanced technology allows information to be scattered about the world. Studies have shown for some countries, an increase in employment and investment rates. In metropolitan areas, there is more power and skill in comparison to a rural area. These areas are places that you find people to help your business expand and grow. Global cities help connect us with the world in a process that “connects advanced services, producer centers, and markets in a global network, with different intensity and at a different scale.” Philip Cooke’s study shows how regions and localities don’t disappear, but instead, become part of the global network. Saskia Sassen argues that cities function in four new ways which are: “as highly concentrated command points in the organization of the world economy, key locations for finance and for specialized service firms, sites of production, and lastly, as markets for the products and innovations produced.” Cities aren’t just a place for people to coexist and inhabit, but it is a process, as Castell emphasizes in his text. Technology just makes it easier for cities and their people to expand globally.
