Tools for Thought
by Howard Rheingold
Publisher: The MIT Press 2000
Number of pages: 360
Where will our new machines take us? Back in 1985, forward-thinking Howard Rheingold asked research pioneers to describe the nascent personal-computer revolution and its trajectory. The book is an excellent slice of "retrospective futurism" -- showing how we got to our largely wired world and where we might find ourselves in the future, as well as exploring some might-have-been scenarios that still seemed likely in the '80s.
