I am adding this to my architectural and infrastructure studies reading list. I am currently writing about soundscape addressability, which is a concept that traces postal metaphors in computation and aims to reframe 'machine listening' in terms of a process of numeric address (vectors) stabilisation instead of the misleading cognitivist language. Some authors that come to mind when I ponder postal metaphors of 'modern' infrastructures among you of course are Shannon Mattern, Ranjodh Singh Dhaliwal and Alexander Galloway. I was fascinated by the historical depth of Krajewski's Paper Machines book and I think he wrote one about The Server in case you like 'New' German media theory.

I will have to check out the Paper Machines book and Dhaliwal's work, thanks! I know Mattern and Galloway.
