Abstract

Looks at the future of communications in the 21st century — following the 19th century transport revolution and the 20th century people movement — stating the transport of ideas and information will affect most people in most countries in various ways. Suggests that telephones, television and the personal computer will all be prominent in differing ways, but it will take possibly two decades for the full impact to be felt. Sums up that the so‐called ‘death of distance’ should mean technological progress should make societies richer not poorer, giving workers more control over their working lives.
