Technology 2001

The FuTure of Computing and Communications
Foreword by Arthur C. Clarke


The computer pioneers and strategic planners writing in Technology 2001 discuss the collection of technologies that could well define the computing and communications environment that lies ahead. From inside the companies and the laboratories that have shaped today's information age, they describe the dramatic possibilities for individuals and institutions as the millennium approaches.


"Denos Gazis of IBM contributes a wonderful no-nonsense chapter called 'Brief Time, Long March.' He charts the course our recent technological past has taken, then assays our current condition for strengths and weaknesses. It is a fact-filled tour of the state of the industry.

Other chapters stand out for the same thoroughness .... The writers know their topics and communicate their knowledge with skill... Technology 2001 prepares us for the future by assessing our present condition with depth and accuracy, and by raising the questions that should stay poised on our lips as we hurtle forward."
