Time-space convergence

Comment specifically of how time-space convergence has affected your life experience. Give an example. Do you think time-space convergence similarly affects urban and the rural equally? Does Time-space convergence differ from country to country, if so, in what ways?

Solution Preview

Hi and thank you for using Brainmass. The solution below should get you started. In this particular task, you are being asked to explain how the phenomenon of time-space convergence has affected your life. This means that it is going to be personal and reflective, wherein you exemplify particulars of your life. I suggest using this simple outline:

1. Time-space convergence - 100 words
2. Experience from your personal life - 100 words
3. Urban and rural impact - 100 words
4. Country to country comparative impact - 100 words
This should yield the 400 words asked of you. You should also use examples from your current materials in class. Just let me know via the feedback section if you need further clarification. All the best with your studies.

Time-Space Convergence

In human geography, time-space convergence is the phenomenon wherein because of technology, distance between formerly far-off points have shrunk, as described by this AP flashcard (2014), "Time-space convergence, the idea that distance between some places is actually shrinking as technology enables more rapid communication and increased interaction between those places." An idea originally proposed by D.G. Janelle in 1968, it was a result of spatial studies in relation to ideas of identity, production, transportation and impact to society. While earlier studies focused on how transportation technologies (buses, cars, ships, trains and planes) made distance shorter ...
