Last century, for some reason, I was asked to give Tom my list of predictions on “tech-stuff” for the new century.
I did, and of course cannot find it now – but I think almost all of the items on that earlier list have now come to be.
Tom was interested in all this so-called “high-tech” foolishness a long time ago. He knew it was not foolish.
His natural historical observer talents and obsessions were keen way back then, and continue to be so now in 2013.
Tom’s latest book, MOVING INNOVATION, is the finest and most complete gathering of fact and testimony
explaining how the new Computer Generated Imagery came to find its present ubiquitous place in our lives today.
His research into the many disparate strands that somehow magnetically wove themselves together is thorough
and complete. He not only captures the information, but also the refined quality of courageous craziness that was
the norm among all the early people in this adventure. Tom’s conversational delivery of all these serendipitous
historical events convert a very messy past into a clearly understandable evolution to the present.
The only negative thing I can say about the book is the tremendous aging effect it has had on me – as it
makes me come to terms with the fact that the initial revolution really is over. That I lived through it all,
but now that part is really over. So, get this book and read it. It will begin to help you prepare for all the
current nonlinear curves of change increasingly combining to swamp us daily in unrequired newness.
Thanks Tom. Great book.
