Abstract

Combinational theory and structuration theory provide a basis for the incorporation of innovative views of place within an ontological framework. Geographers can identify similar patterns of nodes in places and in communication media. These patterns, or topologies, provide a set of opportunities and constraints for social interaction. When topologies in computer networks replicate the topologies in familiar places, certain elements of social structuration are shared. This sharing lends validity to claims about virtual place. Political and social implications of computer networking are explored
