Summary
An economy in which the office is a thing of the past. a sensor system that tracks and identifies goods in transit. a camera that records every life experience in minute detail. If these sound like dreams of a distant future, think again. This program examines the boundless opportunities and staggering challenges of the digital era, presenting concise case studies of 21st-century companies, entrepreneurs, and advances. Google's business applications, Kodak's digital ventures, Microsoft's Sensecam, Hewlett-Packard's high-def teleconferencing interface, Linden Labs' Second Life universe, and Craigslist's immensely popular classified ads are among the developments and strategies in the spotlight. Bonus segments (DVD only) focus on additional innovations and ideas
