The Revolution Is Coming, Eventually

The Revolution Is Coming, Eventually "Now, slowly but surely, portions of the telecom industry are recovering. Shares of the companies Mr. Gilder recommends in The Gilder Technology Report - a more diverse mix than it used to be - have outperformed the Nasdaq by a healthy margin for the past year, and his adherents are cheering up. And Mr. Gilder is gradually regaining the credibility that nearly vaporized before his eyes three years ago."

George Gilder's career resurrection continues, this time in the NYT -- interesting. Gilder's Microcosm: The Quantum Revolution In Economics And Technology is an amazing book -- a poignant biography of Carver Mead, his work, and his impact on computing; according to this NYT article, Gilder will next year publish another book about Mead's more recent, pioneering endeavors in digital photography. I have little use for Gilder's rants and writing on political topics, however.
