1994-02. Achenbach, J. 5/29/94. Wire me up, Scotty. We have seen the future, but we still can't tell you what it means. The Washington Post. P. W10 Author conducted a research of the future technological advances and their implications and affects on our lives. ARPA, Pentagon, Military Industrial Complex- Futuristic Gadgets Division, Stephen Squires- Commander of the Enterprise, Greg Simon, President Clinton, George Mason University, Professor of Public Affairs Huge Heclo, Vice President Gore, John Battelle, Howard Rheingold, Steve Krause, Oracle Corp., Dave Lockton, Xerox PARCCompared to the changes the techno-logical advances had on society in the past, such as the telephone and TV. Researched the potential changes the future technology can bring to the people through interviews and observations.New technological innovations coming out before we are ready for them, replacing the existing ones, in such a speed that people cannot adopt to it yet. DVD players are out before people have learned how to record one TV show while watching another one on their VCRs Technological changes and their affects on societySocial implications / aspects of nanotechnologyFinal interpretation whether the technology is good or not to the reader, guiding them with the series of questions to lead them towards their own process of thinking
