If we're lucky, we'll be living in a world of more productivity, more energy, and more equalityand if we're not, we'll be facing the profound threat of xistent privacy, ecological collapse, and nuclear proliferation. Of course, we can't know the future, but <EM>Megatech: Technology in 2050</EM> is a mind-clearing guide to the possibilities.<BR><BR>In this bold new book, Daniel Franklin brings together today's most innovative scientists, leaders, thinkers, and writers to imagine how future technology will develop and shape our lives.
