As we stand on the threshold of a new millennium, it is tempting to speculate wildly about the impact of information technology on our information processing society. These millennial changes, historically, have ushered in great periods of optimism and it is typical of our century that today's optimism should be a technology optimism. We tend to believe that everything information technology can accomplish will be accomplished. Many believe that the pulling power of the technology is such that it will influence or even fundamentally alter underlying traits of human behaviour, redefining work, travel and leisure into new frameworks of activity governed by the digital paradigm.
