Release 2.1: A Design for Living in the Digital Age
People all over the world, and the U.S. in particular, are struggling with the enormous business, social, and political implications of the digital age. Those in the technology vanguard want to retain the purity and frontier spirit of cyberspace, while business leaders and entrepreneurs are trying to harness its economic power. Many of us think of the internet as simply a tool for electronic mail, while others see it as a new medium that primarily affects their children. Some worry about threats to their own privacy; others are concerned that criminals may use the new technology to outwit law enforcement. And yet others wonder how requirements for electronic literacy and access to information may affect the gap between haves and have-nots. Many people have discussed the future of the digital age at great length, but, until now, no one has explored the opportunities and trade-offs individuals and governments will face as society moves more fully into the information age.
