The Promise and Perils of Emerging Information Technologies. Forum Report. A Report of the Annual Roundtable on Information Technology (2nd, Aspen, Colorado, August 4-8, 1993).
Bollier, David
This report summarizes the roundtable on information technology which brought together leaders from business, government, the non-profit sector, and academia to explore the use of complex adaptive systems as a model for determining information technology's role in both the workplace and diverse societal settings. Topics covered in this document are: new perspectives for understanding information technology; information technology in the workplace; information technology and its affects on democratic values and culture; and constructing a vision for information technology. Also included is a paper developed from the roundtable: "Towards Informed Participation: Six Scenarios in Search of Democracy in the Electronic Age" (John Seely Brown, Paul Duguid, and Susan Haviland). A list of conference participants and the Communications and Society Program Statement are appended. (JLB)
