The Information Highway as Revolution or Evolution?
Esrock, Stuart L.
New Jersey Journal of Communication, v5 n1 p47-65 Spr 1997
Suggests that society is more likely in the midst of an information evolution, rather than a revolution. Uses new media technology and forecasting literatures as a framework to evaluate current technology developments and public discussion about the information highway. Compares the hopeful rhetoric that surrounds the information highway to similar discourse that accompanied previous innovations. (PA)
