Paper or Workshop title
Ephemeral Cities: Space, Time and Identity in the Internet Age.

Abstract
Ephemeral Cities suggests that who we are is part and parcel with those who have come
before us and with the places we've lived. Using maps and freeing information about people,
places and named things from archives, libraries and museums, it defines unique methods of
discovery tied to familiar surroundings.
The presentation discusses the preparation of maps for Internet discovery; the necessary
creation of a multi-lingual and historically diverse gazetteer; and methods of information
extraction for the purpose of fleshing out an encyclopedic digital library of events, persons and
things tied to place. It will demonstrate the finished technology and its research uses. And, it
will illustrate its potential for tourism as well as learning.
A Japanese proverb says: "Tigers die and leave their skins; people die and leave their names."
Ephemeral Cities suggests that the Internet allows the dead to reclaim their names and teach
us about their lives.
