Suggests that we are in the early stages of an information revolution which will have an effect similar to that of the industrial revolution of the last century. Looks at the development of electronic news production, the technology required and in particular at the services to shipping offered by IMC Ltd. Warns that information should remain public property and care should be taken to ensure that the elderly, the technophobic, the under‐educated and the poor for whom modems and gateways are as alien as Close Encounters, should not be denied their right to information. Concludes that electronic news could replace ink on paper, but only when something better than a PC screen comes into widespread use.
