Abstract: Information communication technologies have permeated new consumer markets at remarkable speeds, diffusing to even the most remote and economically marginalised populations. In remote Aboriginal communities in the Northern Territory of Australia, residents have until recently been isolated from these symbols and facilitators of globalisation. But the rapid diffusion of Internet based technologies in recent years raises important questions about future residential migration aspirations as residents engage with the global order. In this paper we critically review these ?technologies of change? for their propensity to alter remote Indigenous spatiality. We propose a theoretical reconstruction of transitional migration theory, as it has been previously applied, and denote the implications for policy makers, researchers and service providers.
