Using an understanding of how capital moves through and influences space, we explore the recent growing association of data and the governing of cities. Using the lens of Capital might help us answer questions about why data has become prominent in Johannesburg and Cape Town, what this prominence means for the production of knowledge and meaning and more importantly what it means for social justice in the context of an uneven geography such as that of South Africa and many other African countries.
