Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Strategic planners and computer scientists in companies and labs working on information technology predict the future of their profession. Not surprisingly, they foresee unprecedented innovation and growth, with no consideration of factors external to the industry, such as politics, economics, or environmental and psychological changes.

What People are saying about this

Robert Dean

"The book quite simply plots the course of high tech's pivotal influence on US business. I know of nothing else as useful for both the general reader and the industry specialist."

Raymond Vernon

"For an innocent like myself, asking for orientation in a world increasingly organized by DMUs, CD-ROMs, LANs, WANs and other creatures of the computer, Technology 2001 is the indispensable guidebook. The picture it paints for the decade ahead sometimes seems to outdistance science fiction."

From the Publisher

"Denos Gazis of IBM contributes a wonderful no-nonsense chapter called
"Brief Time, Long March." He charts the course our recent technological past has taken, then assays our current condition for strengths and weaknesses. It is a fact-filled tour of the state of the industry.Other chapters stand out for the same thoroughness.... The writers know their topics and communicate their knowledge with skill... Technology 2001 prepares us for the future by assessing our present condition with depth and accuracy, and by raising the questions that should stay poised on our lips as we hurtle forward." Rich Ayre ,
PC Magazine

Senator Al Gore

" Technology 2001 shows technologists and policymakers the exciting places that computers and communications are taking us. It is a much needed guide as we try to make the proper policy decisions for reaping the benefits of these often bewildering possibilities."

Phil Odeen

"Fascinating. We're all dazzled by advances in computer and telecommunication technology. But we seldom have the opportunity to sit back and think about the implications or where we are headed. Leebaert's marvelous book does that for you."

Jeff Cunard

"Only MIT and the leading US technology strategists could have drawn such a breathtakingly insightful roadmap to the future of business, politics, and the professions. Nothing so intelligible and thorough exists."
