This chapter documents the hard work put in by business to the task of ‘explicitation’ through concept-practices like ‘community of practice’ and the dividends that it has paid in terms of constructing a series of realities — new kinds of inhabitation — in which business forms a foregrounded background. In particular, it outlines how a new kind of spatial ‘atmosphere’ is being created which allows different kinds of subjects, objects and worlds to be thrown together through the construction of what might be called the ‘inhabitable map’.

Keywords:   space, worlding, inhabitable map, community of practice, foregrounded background
