Future reading

If you're concerned about how you're going to use up all that spare time in the festive days ahead, why not log onto the newly launched sites for the Delta and Sigma scan projects, looking at issues of technology and social change over the next 50 years. Of relevance from a telco perspective, in my view, might be "Complexity Theory as a Tool in Social Relations," "New Technologies for Cooperation," this piece on ubiquitous broadband, the future of cybervanity, and context-aware computing. And if you manage to get through all that, I also highly recommend reading Alec Saunders' latest musings on "new presence," which coincidentally touch on some related themes.
