James Martin Speaking at Middlebury College

Posted By on Tue, Sep 20, 2005 at 10:37 AM

"Information-age guru" James Martin is speaking today at Middlebury College, about "The Meaning of the 21st Century." Says the press release from Midd, "Martin is widely recognized as an authority on the social and commercial ramifications of computers and technology. He is also well known for the accuracy of his predictions about technology's impact on modern society."

He's speaking at 4:30, in the Robert A. Jones House conference room. The lecture is free and open to the public.I can't go. Alas, this press release came after I'd already made plans for this afternoon. If anybody makes it there, please report back.

His Wikipedia entry says this about Monseiur Martin: "Dr. James Martin is a consultant and author of over a hundred books, some of which are considered to be self-promoting in character." It also says: "Martin helped establish The James Martin 21st Century School at the University of Oxford, whose stated goal is to "formulate new concepts, policies and technologies that will make the future a better place to be".
