 Contemplating Roads Less Traveled, by Kevin Hunt

Smooth Pavement Ahead?

Admittedly, at the heart of The Road Ahead is a thesis we're all sympathetic with, one that is admirable and worth pursuing. It's democratic. Bill imagines a world in which technology fosters collaboration, cooperation, and connectivity. This is a lofty goal. The problem is that, rather than contemplating the myriad of information needs and problems that exist in the world today, then exploring the role that computers and technology can play in providing for these needs and in solving these problems, Bill seems content to take a different tack: he offers technological solutions in search of markets. Moreover, the solutions he discusses mostly boil down to --increased efficiency.
