Studies on the future of technologies applied in urban spaces along with the notion of global city wired society and network society have triggered the creation of a new field of activity which comprised professionals working at the intersection of “people, place and technology”. Digital technologies offer opportunities to help cities achieve sustainable development. This new field of activity has examined issues such as cultural, spatial and socio-economic repercussions and relationship of information and communication technologies (ICTs) and cities, local innovation systems and electronic applications (e.g. e-government, GovTech start-ups and incubators), and the movement of digital to cyber to wired to intelligent to smart cities. The article provides a historical background on the role that technology innovation has played in re-shaping cities and economies, and how it impacted the development of cities using the knowledge framework.
