"I suspect that the airport will be the true city of the next century.  The great airports are already suburbs of an invisible world capital, a virtual metropolis whose faubourgs are named Heathrow, Kennedy, Charles de Gaulle, Nagoya, a centripetal city whose population forever circles its notional centre, and will never need to gain access to its dark heart."  

                                                                                                 -- J.G. Ballard
