Forbes special report on communicating
Forbes Magazine published a special report on communicating.

It is divided in a number of sections: technology, science, commerce & culture and "on the other hand", and contains interviews with the likes of Noam Chomsky, Jane Goodall, Kurt Vonnegut, Desmond Morris and Ray Kurzweill, to name just a few.

Articles that caught my eye include:

Communication devices of the future
[We are facing] a future flooded with great, big wired and wireless pipelines of data coming at you from all directions in all locations at all times. To some, this will be a wonderland of entertainment and telecommunications possibilities. To others, this will be a nightmare of in-your-face digital annoyances.

Cutting-edge computer interfaces
The latest generation of user interfaces are experimental devices that are stretching the boundaries of how we communicate with our computers–and how they communicate with us. Many new interfaces are designed to tap directly into tactile phenomena such as tastes, odors and sensations.

The next 4,000 days
Just as the internet rapidly evolved from delivering web pages to delivering phone calls, it will continue to subsume older communications networks.

Commercial conversations
Traditionally, companies talked, consumers listened. That’s about to change.
