Anticipating Tomorrow: Living And Making A Living In The 21st Century
Technology will change our lives radically. Obsolescence will rapidly become a more pressing dilemma than malfunction. That will produce great uncertainty. We will need to decide between buying and leasing. Will our jobs be secure? Will our education be up to date? Will our politics reflect the times? Indeed, will we even be able to depend on religion for stability?
"Anticipating Tomorrow" provides non-technical setting on much of the technical paraphernalia which is emerging and altering familiar patterns so dramatically--from jobs, to communities, to entertainment, to religion, and to retirement. The material presented will contribute insights and strategies to endure in the new era. It is a catalog of new options rather than a list of new commandments. It emphasizes the ascendant feature of this century is impermanence while stressing durable planning. "Anticipate Tomorrow" details viable choices which prevent the Age of Information from becoming the Age of Anxiety. The decisions are still yours.
