Synopsis

In this remarkably prescient book, Gilder predicts how television will merge with other technologies and evolve into the telecomputer, a personal computer adapted for video processing and connected by fiberoptic threads to other personal computers around the world. This interactive system will change how we do business, educate our children, and spend our leisure time. It will imperil all large, centralized organizations, including broadcasting and cable networks, phone companies, government bureaucracies, and multinational corporations. But the United States has only to unleash its industrial resources to command the telefuture, in which new technology will overthrow the stultifying influence of mass media, renew the power of individuals, and promote democracy throughout the world.
