Yearning for experience

Welcome to the post-digital world, an exhilarating return to civility – via Facebook and Lady Gaga

Where is your post-digital presence? What is on your techno-horizon? Don&;t tell me you are still putting e- and i- in front of your product or talking "platforms", like some noughties nerd. That is so yesterday.

Ever since I was spectacularly wrong about the internet I have fought shy of futurology. I cringe to recall that in the mid-90s I dismissed it as a technological flash in the pan, like the fax and citizen-band radio. I said it would be of use chiefly to pornographers and lawyers, and "unlikely to have widespread application". As for threatening books or newspapers, that was ridiculous.
