The costs of this are high social control and resources limited to what is available within the group. By contrast, it is more difficult to locate and access resources in socially and spatially dispersed networks. Hence the move to a networked society places an increased importance of network capital in the fund of desirable resources, along with financial capital, human capital, organizational capital, and cultural capital. Such network capital includes the fund of others who provide tangible and intangible resources: information, knowledge, material aid, financial aid, alliances, emotional support, and a sense of being connected.

Back in 1831 Victor Hugo gave voice to reactions to the impact of a new communication technology (the printing press) on physical spaces and social institutions. In the Hunchback of Notre Dame [4] the character of the Archdeacon proclaims with alarm “the book will kill the building” [4]. From the vantage point of history, perhaps it is not unexpected that future media innovations would lead to cries that the city would ‘dissolve’ in the face of new technologies.
