‘Today’ and Tomorrows that Might Be

I’m speaking at Beyond 2010 Edmonton next week, and, stepping out from my usual social media, open data and Gov 2.0 fare, my presentation ties personal childhood passions and forever dreams into a talk called “Sci-fi, Digital Society and the Future of Governance.” Here’s a look at several of the books that figure into this look at ‘today’ and tomorrows that might be (Amazon affiliate links):

The Future of Work: How the New Order of Business Will Shape Your Organization, Your Management Style and Your Life (Malone, 2004)

You Are Not a Gadget: A Manifesto (Lanier, 2010)

Player Piano (Vonnegut, 1952)

Foundation and the Robot Series (Foundation Novels) (Asimov, 1950-1985)
