 Thanks to everyone who sent me recommendations for sources on new media and
public/private space.  Because so many people have been so kind, and also
because so many people have expressed interest in the topic, I'm posting the
works I've cited in my book manuscript that I'm using specifically to
discuss issues of space and place.  Below that are the same types of sources
that I used in my first book.  As is evident, there aren't too many specific
to the internet and mobile ICTs: hence my query from yesterday.

I'll compile the recommendations I've received via the list and post those
in a bit.  And please, keep them coming if you have any.
