-THe” real” time means lived time, the time we experience .In real time ,neither we can fast forward things nor we can make it slow.Real time is flexible, can unified without thinking about the real time. Whereas digital time is not a lived time.It is a machine time .It is locked to a clock and that time could make everything more regular than lived time.Digital time is designed from machine .We can get all kind of conveniences that are possible in making life easier but it may be the reason to lose the ability to share individual time with one another.

For example, parks, sidewalks, libraries, schools, governmental buildings, recreation facilities .A successful public space generally offer qualities like easy accessible, it should be comfortable and have a good image, people should be able to engage in an array of activities, and, it should be sociable.Now the Astor place lacks those qualities.Jeremiah Moss argues that developers in Astor Place have now Private security guards and are not allowed skateboarding etc.And the public does not seems to notice those things since they are in their own private bubble within a public place.
- Emily Thompson’s idea of the development of concert halls arose from desires to “control sound in interior spaces” because of constant never ending development and recreating in the exterior environment that creates noise.The drive to control noise lead to the development of concert halls.
