Summary
  • Alex de Tocqueville commented in the 1830s on a strange American penchant for all things new. These words are perhaps even more true today as US citizens gladly gobble up the latest in ever-more-advanced computer and telecommunications technologies. Americans seem to hunger for faster PCs and better remote controls and cordless phones. In this race to embrace new technologies, however, psychological and social issues are often neglected. The new is almost universally considered an improvement and there is the constant promise of something even better around the next bend. American businesses seem to be one of the few sectors attempting to balance older and newer technologies. They seem to grasp the psychic effects of constant change. The advent of the Information Superhighway promises to be another technological testing ground. US citizens should not be too quick to sign on to global online information systems. They may become electronic shut-ins.
