Beyond Babel; New Directions in Communications.
Maddox, Brenda
Concentrating on satellites, cable television, and telephones, this book describes the revolution now taking place in communications. As a result of this revolution, distance will no longer be a barrier to the exchange of ideas and information. One eventual effect of communications technology may be an end to dense population centers, as people communicate more and more by technology rather than in person. Many of the difficulties encountered by some earlier innovations in the field were caused by the lack of imagination of those in charge of implementing the technology. (JK)
