Summary:
If we look at former industrial ages that have driven us forward in the last few hundred years then you conclude that each age flourishes and then loses its original momentum with respect to advancement and change. Eventually a new age appears that may well make obsolete the achievements of a previous age.

Are we coming to the end of the IT Age? Is this being brought about by some major and hardening factors that will be difficult to soften? Beware: the end of the IT Age is nigh. Repent or innovate faster!

Maurice Perks has had a distinguished career at IBM and is an IBM Fellow and will address some of these issues in his thought provoking presentation.

Everyone is welcome. Refreshments provided. Admission is free.
