Abstract:

This paper adopts its title from William Gibson's quote and provides an analysis of what lies just beyond the horizon. The presentation shifts the focus away from the tactical issues (for example, how best to integrate the Internet today) towards the strategic issues posed by the social, cultural, and economic context created by the Internet and other changes. The presentation identifies things that we already know separately, and pulls them together into a holistic review.
