Tips for time travelers
After Tips for Time Travelers, readers will never think about technology the same way again. Peter Cockrane, research head at industry pioneer British Telecom, offers an uncensored and sometimes disturbing commentary on how today's dramatic advances in technology will alter the way we live and think. No longer science fiction, recent news-making breakthroughs -- such as human cloning. identification chips implanted under the skin, digitally-enhanced brains and machines that can think -- are becoming a reality that will irrevocably reshape our culture and our lives. The technology is inevitable. Cochrane argues: the only question is whether or not we will embrace it or fear it.
