Impact of Expansion of Digital Connectivity Rescheduled to February 22 Economic Perspectives

Posted by Hopeton on January 16, 2010

“…the inevitable expansion of digital connectivity to all of us and the things we care about will beat out the Internet and any other technology experience we’ve lived through.  Its impact will dwarf those changes just in any single dimension alone,” writes Emily Nagle Green in her new book Anywhere: How Global Connectivity Is Revolutionizing the Way We Do Business.  Green will be the February 22 guest on Economic Perspectives on KAZI 88.7 FM, 5:30 p.m. – 6 p.m. central time.  You can listen to the interview live online at www.kazifm.org.

Green writes that the devices linked to the global network will expand far beyond computers and phones.  It will include “cameras and picture frames, cars and crates, pumps and pill bottles:  literally anything that can benefit from being able to exchange information of any kind with any other item or person in the world.”
