Setting a New Table

  • Dec 28, 1999
Rating:
+5
This is a probing examination of the "information highway" as a means by which to transmit, globally, "weightless bits at the speed of light." Because bits are "the DNA of information", Negroponte's brilliant analysis of their nature and impact helps us to benefit from as well as understand a "revolution" which has only begun. In my opinion, he has helped to set a new "table" at which the rest of us can examine a variety of menus as well as the materials required to feast on the opportunities of the Digital Age. This is a major contribution to our understanding of how that age is evolved to date, and, in which directions it will proceed...with or without us.
