George Gilder on Blogs and the Media

George Gilder is one of the great thinkers of our time. -BIO- He follows and explains the leading edge technology better than anyone I know of. See his Gilder Technology Report. He was a leader in analyzing the social changes of the 1970s with the book Men and Marriage. Then he had a best seller with Wealth and Poverty explaining the causes of poverty. Along the way he was one of the leading thinkers on supply-side economics and the prosperity of the 1980s. In the early 1990s he predicted a revolution to access to information enabled by increased computing and communications power in Life After Television That vision has almost arrived with the internet and especially blogs and cheap making and distribution of videos. Gilder is a senior fellow at Discovery Institute in Seattle. Come and see/hear him in Seattle next month.
Is the Blogosphere the Death of the Mainstream Media?
