years for the enormous implications of that realization to take root. The period from the 1940s to the 1990s was a lull before the technology storm that accelerated the profound transformations in learning, thinking, and working that has led to a third-millenium man. Strangely enough (until one thinks about it and realizes that this was always the case, from the invention of the printing press leading to the book and the intellectual revolution of universal reading and writing), it is technology that has driven these new intellectual developments and not the other way round.
By the year 2055 we will not have been released from the ancient Chinese curse "May you live in interesting times." The interesting times ahead will continue to confront people with grave problems. The challenge of educating an intelligent, informed, and responsible citizenry will be with us as always. We will have to train even greater numbers of intellectual workers.
