This series of articles by George Gilder provides some interesting background that may help prepare readers to better understand and place in proper perspective, the concepts and technologies related to what the popular press has chosen to label "The National Data Super Highway." The author and Forbes, the publisher of these articles, have given their permission to post them on the Internet. Please note that the preface preceding each article, must be included when cross posting or otherwise uploading. The list below is arranged according to the sequence in which the articles were published. Since the articles constitute selected chapters from George Gilder's book - Telecosm - which is to be published sometime next year, I strongly recommend that they be read in the order they were published in Forbes ASAP.
The Discovery Institute's Gilder Website includes technology and public policy writings of Senior Fellow George Gilder,as well as interviews with, and articles about the author.
