Clifford Stoll spoke about the societal impact of instant computerized communications technology. After his remarks, he took questions from the audience. He argued against three statements about the future which what he called the “culture of computing” has labelled as obviously true: the importance of computer training in employment and education, the power of instant information and the totality of a digital revolution. Professor Stoll is the author of Silicon Snake Oil: Second Thoughts on the Information Highway, published by Doubleday. close
