Written in 1997 by a early adopter of technology. It's fun to read what he got right with his predictions and also to find out about tech that is commonplace now, that was only available in labs in the late 90's. ...more

Peter Cochrane was the head of the research labs at British Telecommunications, and this book is a series of short essays on his ideas about future technologies. Given that this book was assembled in 1999 (I believe the individual articles were written in the 1990s), events have overtaken some of his projections, but they are still interesting. At 2 pages per essay, this is a book best dipped into rather than read at one sitting. There are 108 of these short essays in this book.
