Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In his visionary new book George Gilder brilliantly and persuasively outlines the sweeping new developments in computer and fiber optic technology that spell certain death to traditional television and telephony. In their places, he argues, will emerge a new paradigm in which people-to-people communications give way to links among computers to be found in every home and office. The rise of the telecomputer (or "teleputer") will utterly transform the way we do business, educate our children, and spend our leisure time, and will imperil such large, centralized, top-down organizations as cable networks, phone companies, government bureaucracies, and multinational corporations.

Synopsis:

"In , George Gilder imagines a world in which the boob tube has given way to the living room telecomputer. . . . Mr. Gilder's case is galvanic, at times even intoxicating." --Jim Holt,
