In this book, Gates lays out his vision of an interconnected world built around the Internet. The fundamental premise of the book is that life will be transformed by the convergence of inexpensive computing and inexpensive communications. It is Gates' belief that the implications of this transformation must be widely understood and debated.
Drawing from his experience at the center of the personal computer revolution, Gates gives invaluable insights into how the Internet will continue to evolve, what impact technology will have, what roles companies and government should or should not play. According to Bill Gates, the Internet will change the way we make choices about learning, working, buying and socializing.
