You Go Where You Know

Who you are predicts where you will go in the city.

Theme: Geography as a social science

Subject Article: "The Emerging Science of Computational Anthropology: Location-based social networks are allowing scientists to study the way human patterns of behavior change in time and space, a technique that should eventually lead to deeper insights into the nature of society."

Other Links: 1. "Indigenization of Urban Mobility."

Postscripts: Geography is the social science discipline without a home. Geographers steal theory from other disciplines. Other disciplines do geography and call it anthropology or economics or political science. For decades, geopolitics (the dark art of geography) was banned from US universities. It was taboo. Even today, rankings of graduate programs often overlook geography departments. Geography as a form of knowledge production is illegitimate.
