The premise of a new book, `The Information Revolution: Its Current and Future Consequences’, is that only those willing to think, here and now, about such a future will have a chance to be prepared for it. Written by an interdisciplinary research group from the Georgia Institute of Technology, the book addresses information technology’s potential impact on the workplace, academia, political affairs, `information societies’ and management of the modern organisation by the year 2020.
The Industrial Revolution is being deposed. By the mid 21st Century, the Information Revolution will have reshaped completely the way we work, play, govern and even wage war. Are you prepared for such a future?
