Walled City is not anywhere

"Walled City is of the net, but not on it. There are no laws here, only agreements."
William Gibson: Idoru, p 209
So I've been re-reading the Bridge Trilogy, as I do every other year or so, and a week after finishing the second novel which "explains" the concept of the Walled City, io9 pointed me towards this German documentary on the actual Kowloon Walled City in Hongkong that was destroyed in 1994.
