A conceptual framework for considering mapping projects as they change over time

and programming skills, as well as resources for quickly training newcomers to help map. Communication channels are well set up and those contributing to the map can make use of an interface that has been evolving through user Maps as foams 211 feedback. As a result, the HOT team was able to rapidly supplement existing maps of the affected areas (using pre-disaster satellite images from Bing maps) and then, in a second phase, map the extent of damage because they were granted access to post-disaster satellite imagery. This mapping project ‘bubble’ is well

interests of social groups within British firms. First, the lines of communication between employer and employee, historically represented by a ‘single channel’ of trade union-centred collective bargaining, are increasingly ‘dominated by the employer, with no independent representation of workers interests’ (Hyman, 1997: 314). There is a ‘representation gap’ (Towers, 1997) in hyperflexible state-societies that leaves six out of seven US workers, and two out of three British workers, without effective forms of representation at work. As a result, concerted negotiation has

musicians rather than from books or written notation – Irish traditional musicians have adapted to changes in communication technology. John and I listen to radio programmes and recordings to learn tunes and use the internet to view video clips of traditional Irish music. We are part of a global community of traditional Irish musicians that share tunes and stories. John has a wealth of history from his youth and home place but also adapts to changes in a living musical tradition.

slaves. However, from the perspective of the masters, the slaves were nothing more than goods. Two dehumanities lived alongside each other but could not relate – one produced by the violence of slavery and the commercialisation of human beings, and the other produced for the benefit of the masters, their side-kicks and those who stood to benefit from the system. Slavery is not a relationship. The two ways of being show an ontological duplicity. The hypothesis of a dual ontology There is no communication between the two ontologies: slaves do not suddenly become

absolute terms – the most globalised, the most successful, and so forth. These sentiments were represented in portrayals of Ireland as a knowledge economy that emphasised the liberating capacity of information and communication technology (ICT), particularly from the constraints of geography. In the archive of the boom-time, there is an interview in Business Week with one key figure in the Celtic Tiger story, Mary Harney, the leader of the now defunct right-of-centre political party the Progressive Democrats and then Tánaiste and Minister for Enterprise, Trade and

Therefore, even with rising unemployment nationally, the low pay and insecure nature of horticultural employment that characterises it as part of the secondary labour market also renders it unattractive to the Irish workforce and dependent on migrant labour. In addition, evidence from supporting welfare beneficiaries into short-term, seasonal work (Bord Glas, 1988; 1994

promise the motorway made to develop the regional economy of the south-east has not materialised. Between 2008 and 2011, just as the infrastructure came on-stream, the number of people registered as unemployed in Waterford rose by over 100 per cent. Job losses included the closure of the famed Waterford Crystal plant and the global tele-services provider TalkTalk. These economic problems illustrate that in the world of instant communication and rapid technological innovation, where businesses can operate in the cloud rather than on concrete, the assumptions about the

engagement has been limited. The need to continuously animate these urban spaces by identifying new and more effective strategies in order to engage with the local community has been recognised. The urban gardens are mainly perceived as public places and thus less related to an autonomous interaction. The majority of the respondents demonstrated an awareness about the existence of the urban gardens. However, it is still not very clear to the residents and retailers who is in charge of their management and maintenance. This highlights a scarce or ineffective communication
