About this title

Synopsis:

Infostructure change is technology-driven, inevitable, somewhat predictable and, on the whole, beneficial. But it will also be much more disruptive than we realise and it will change the World Order.

From the Inside Flap:

The Race to the Intelligent State

Will the information revolution create a global village, populated by self-fulfilled infonauts, or a dreary treadmill? The Race to the Intelligent State is an antidote to the overly optimistic picture which some futurologists have painted, describing a world of opportunity for some and a slide into deprivation for others. As access to, and the ability to manage, information becomes an ever more important determinant of economic and social success, those countries which develop efficient 'infostructures', including the emerging info-tigers, will prosper, leaving those without it in a new Dark Age. Even the existing information superpowers must rise to the challenge of major structural upheavals in industry and society. The Race to the Intelligent State includes a unique 'Infostructure Index' in which Michael Connors gives a snapshot of the world's information flow and availability. It is a stark illustration of the gap between the information winners and potential losers.
