Topic: "The Past and Future of Communication Technology"

About the Event

Everyone wants to know what the future will bring, particularly when you're about to plunk down $3000 on a new computer. But even the most distant future still has an echo of the past. So, for a moment, let's take a look at how we got here. How has communication technology progressed from cave paintings to today? Looking at this progression, where are we likely to be in 2 years? 5 years? 20 years? Change is a constant... But, perhaps not the only constant.

Our speaker, Bob Kovacs, will guide us through a look at how communication technology has progressed over the years and where he sees us heading in the future.

About the Speaker

Bob Kovacs is a consultant who designs television and audiovisual systems for a wide variety of clients, including universities, corporations, and government organizations.
