What is the information highway? How will the new technology change our lives? Do I have to learn to use a computer? Will my job become obsolete? Welcome to The Road Ahead. We have all been bombarded by the seemingly endless hype about the information highway and the coming age of technology. Now, Bill Gates - who built Microsoft into one of the most successful companies in the world - gives us his vision of what the future holds for us. The Road Ahead is his bird's-eye view of the undiscovered territory on the information highway - an authoritative, thought-provoking, and very readable travel guide for the journey. In this optimistic and refreshingly realistic book, Gates looks ahead to show how the emerging technologies of the digital age will transform all our lives. As he says, we are on the brink of a new revolution, and crossing a technology threshold that will forever change the way we buy, work, learn, and communicate with each other.… (més)

It took me a while to get to this book...had it on my shelf for 15 years before the library was lost last year...but in this case, the lateness afforded a hindsight check on his predictions. Unlike Ray Kurzweil's wild imaginings, Gates was pretty spot on. He didn't anticipate the power of the smartphone, but he hinted at corollaries.

I've read three books by three of the big four (Jobs, Gates, Woz & Allen), and Isaacson's bio of Jobs, and Jobs was by far the least of them all - in intellect and ability, though Gates treated him with respect (even admiration!) throughout this book. Jobs was the least human as well. Anyway, this was well written and would have been a prophetic read when it came out, though the wait was worth it in confirming the prophesies. ( )

This book is about Bill Gates' life story and his thought for the future of computers.

I was very impressed. All fans of computer should read this book. ( )

2. Write the summary of the book.

In 1994 and early 1995, when there was a lot of excitement about the Information Highway, it seemed that almost every day one company or another was trying to become part of the plans to build it, to be the first to offer users video through television, for example, or video-telephone system.
Then, later in 1995, people suddenly seemed to notice the Internet. Communication from one person to another- from office to office, home to home or country to country around the world- was clearly an early move toward a future Information Highway. The excitement over building the Highway turned quickly to excitement over the power that people had already through their personal computers on their Internet.
Plans changed fast at every communications, computer and software company. They dropped their ideas for the Internet Highway and started to look much more carefully at the "World Wide Web" of personal computers that people were already using. Companies quickly began to make computer hardware and software specially for the Internet, to give users new ways of spending and getting information on almost any subject, of doing business and of making friends, for example.

3. Write your feelings about the book in details.

Sometimes, with everything changing, it seems that the world will be completely different from one day to the next. It won't. But we have to ready for some changes(See p 33).

We have to get a lot of information to deal with change.

4. Write the words, phrases or sentences that impressed you most in the book and explain why they impressed you. Or you could write your questions about the book.

At the same time, it's important to remember that computers can also "hide" information. You can keep your information safe by using a secret password or number(See p 34).

It's important to be able to hide your information where necessary. ( )

The Road Ahead is a disappointment. The literal, logical software in Gates' head that made him such a computer genius does not translate into compelling storytelling—even with the help of two collaborators. His vision of the not-so-distant future, outlined in chapters with scary fifth-grade social studies titles like ''Lessons From the Computer Industry'' and ''Education: The Best Investment,'' is often too dry to draw you in. Even more mind numbing is Gates' penchant for explaining complicated things like encryption with equally arcane tutorials on factoring and prime numbers.
