Provocative and visionary, illuminating and agenda setting: today’s masters of our Wired World speak about their visions of work and life in our Digital Age. Connectivity, killer apps, teleworking, e-commerce, virtuality, the Information Society… We hear these words daily but what do they actually mean for our working lives, our social and civic responsibilities, our industries, and our business practices? Here, for the first time, is what the key players in the Information Age are saying about the defining issues for our business, commercial, working and civic lives in the Global Information Society. Masters of the Wired World gathers together original, thought-provoking short essays by the ‘digerati’ – over 40 of the world’s most important market movers, leading commentators, policy makers and government shapers – who directly influence work, business and life in the Digital Age.
